The Circle Of Life

The Pet Blessing Service has been a regular fixture of St Mary’s liturgical life for a while. It’s a lovely opportunity to “do something different” and include God’s creatures in our worship (for those of you who don’t feel comfortable with different – the 8 am service will follow our usual pattern). 
If you feel your pet would not be comfortable at the event, please bring a photograph which can be blessed in the pet’s absence.  After all, God is everywhere!
I know personally just how precious and special pets can be.  In some ways I feel closer to my two pets (Minnie and Elliot) than I do most people.  That, in part, is because I spend so much time with them.  They are part of my everyday routines and share so much of my life. They are simply there, and enable me to de-stress just by their presence.  They are also a great source of fun. This picture depicts Craig protecting Elliot from the over enthusiastic interactions of Minnie our dog!  Lots of fun!
