Animals are a part of God’s creation and our pets play an important role in our lives. Come join us on Saturday Oct. 4 (the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, patron saint of animals) at 10 – 11 a.m. at St. John the Divine Anglican Church fenced yard at 579 5th Street, Courtenay for the Blessing of the Animals. We will give thanks to God for our animals and bless them.
Each pet will be individually blessed. All pets must be on a leash or in a carrier. Photographs may also be brought to honour pets that prefer not to travel.
Everyone is welcome and donations will be given to the CV SPCA. Encourage your friends and relatives to attend. St. John the Divine Anglican Church is located at 579 5th Street in Courtenay.
