Pet Service and Blessing of the Animals

Sunday May 5th 2019 at 3pm in Measham St Laurence Church

Our pets are an important part of our lives, and mean a lot to us. So come along to this informal service which will last about 30 minutes. There will be a couple of songs, a thought for the day and then each and every animal will receive a blessing. Get your pet to bring you along.
