Blessings for creatures great and small on Sunday in Duncan

Blessing of the Animals is back at St.

Peter’s Anglican Church in Duncan Sunday, Sept. 28.

Each year the church holds a special service starting at 10 a.m. to commemorate St. Francis of Assisi, who loved all creatures especially the furry, the feathered and the finned.

Many people enjoy the opportunity to take their beloved pet or pictures or even the ashes of a beloved or deceased pet, to give thanks and ask for continued blessings.

"Church is the sacred place where the bond of creation is celebrated and we at St. Peter’s celebrate the love we give and receive from our pets," said Rev. Deborah Rivest, who leads these special events.

It’s a service for all creatures great and small. Treats for your cats and dogs available.
