Blessing of the Animals Sunday


St. Mary of the Hills Episcopal Church will host its traditional “Blessing of the Animals” this Sunday, Oct. 7, at 2 p.m. on the front lawn of the church.

According to organizers, “This is one of the most inspirational services of the church year and welcomes all pet owners and animal lovers to bring his or her beloved pets or any other of God’s creatures ... to be blessed by Father Rick and Father Sam.”

Past services have included everything from goats, horses, rodents and bacteria. However, most of the creatures blessed are much-loved dogs and cats.

St. Mary of the Hills is located at 140 Chestnut Drive in Blowing Rock.
