All humans and their animal friends are invited to the Blessing of the Animals which will take place on Oct. 9 at 4 p.m. at Christ Church Episcopal.
Animals (and their companions) will gather in front of the church, located at 21 Aurora St., just off the Green in Hudson. There will be a short service in the Memorial Garden, then each animal will receive an individual blessing from the Rev. Charlotte Collins Reed. (Rain location is in the Parish Hall.)
The ceremony remembers St. Francis, lover of all living things, whose feast day is Oct. 4.
All animals and humans are welcome, but animals should be sure to keep their humans under control. For more information, call the church office, 330-650-4359, see the website christchurchhudson.org, or contact the Rev. Charlotte Reed at firstname.lastname@example.org.
