The Blue Cross, one of the UK’s foremost animal welfare charities, will be holding an animal service and blessing of pets on Sunday 7th October 2001.
The event will take place at St Paul’s Covent Garden, Bedford Street, London WC2.
The Animal Service, held on the Sunday closest to the feast day of the patron saint of animals, St Francis of Assisi, promises to be a hoot and a howl as animals come in ‘two-by-two’ ranging from parrots to snakes as well as the more common pets like cats and dogs.
Animal themed hymns and prayers will be included in the service which is to be held in the presence of the Lord Mayor of Westminster, Councillor Harvey Marshall and the Lady Mayoress, Hazel Marshall QC.
All donations received from the event will be go towards helping the animals in the care of the Blue Cross.
