Blessing of the Animals, Sunday, June 27, 3:00 pm – As a way to gather families together one more time before the summer, Rev Don, Thea Burton, Grace Marcoux and Andy Pitter will offer a blessing of the animals on the last Sunday of the month. Location TBA. Hopefully Public Health will allow an outdoor faith-gathering of 25 by then; if not, watch for an alternate plan. Pre-registration required regardless; please contact the office by Friday, June 25, 4:00 pm. Individuals and couples welcome, if room is available. Social distancing and other measures are required as per government requirements. Bring your pets, photographs or stuffies and maybe lawn chairs.
