Priests to bless felines and canines
Grace Episcopal Church and Humane Society to host annual Blessing of Animals
Grace Episcopal Church conducts its annual Blessing of Animals last year on the front lawn of Brenau University in Gainesville. This year’s event will be Sunday afternoon.
God loves all creatures great and small, including the animals. Grace Episcopal Church of Gainesville and the Humane Society of Northeast Georgia plans to highlight that point with the annual Blessing of Animals ceremony at 4 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 5. “The Blessing of Animals is our way of celebrating not just the life of St. Francis, but also our reverence for God’s creation, and our calling to care for the environment,” said the Rev. Stuart Higginbotham, rector of Grace Church.
