Animal Blessing Service a great success
Creatures great and small, young and old, joined their human companions in St Botolph’s for our annual St Francis Day Animal Blessing Service on Friday 1 October. Each animal and owner came up for a blessing and the choir sang appropriate music and led the congregation in hymn-singing. The animals were (mostly) well-behaved and after the service there were refreshments for both humans and animals. Make a note in your calendars of the date and time of next year’s service – Friday 7 October 2022 at 12.10pm – when Fr David and Freddie the church dog look forward to welcoming an even larger and more varied menagerie!
