Dozens of dogs, stuffed animals, and a few birds went to church this morning, as part of Trinity Church’s annual Blessing of the Animals. Children and their families say the outdoor service is one of the highlights of the year, and today’s beautiful, sunny morning made it all that much better.
Earlier in the week, Trinity’s Rev. Beth Foote says she practiced her animal blessing techniques on a “holy cow” that resides at the Bishop’s Ranch in Healdsburg (shown at bottom).
