St. George’s Anglican Church is hosting its 16th annual Blessing of the Animals service on Sunday Sept. 30 at 4 p.m., 3909 St. George’s Lane, off Maynard Street in Cadboro Bay.
The church welcomes all members of the community to attend, where people can gather with their pets to show appreciation for the care and support they give, and to acknowledge the need for continued advocacy on behalf of all animals, said Rev. Richard LeSueur.
The service also provides an opportunity for recognition and celebration of the joy that these animals bring to owners.
During the service, a collection will be taken in support of local animal welfare organizations.
