Ignoring the cloudy skies,  faithful pet owners gathered at Trinity Church for its annual Blessing of the Animals service. The Rev. Matthew Dutton-Gillett presided at the short service, which was held in the church courtyard.

About a dozen dogs — plus one cat and a few stuffed animals — were on hand to receive blessings. Some sat patiently, while others just wanted to play, or take part in what Dutton-Gillett said was always the most interesting part of the service: the “animal fellowship.”
