Spotted: Blessing of the Animals at Trinity Church

by Chrisie Wendin on October 17, 2010

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.”
