UNIONVILLE: Blessing of the Animals

The annual Community Pet Blessing and Ice Cream Social will be held from 3 to 5 p.m. Sunday, September 25, at Unionville Presbyterian Church on Wollaston Road. The church members will also be collecting donations for La Mancha Animal Rescue in Ercildoun.
This is always a heart-warming event, in which the Rev. Annalie Korengel dons her special stole with animal silhouettes and says a brief prayer over each critter. Although the pets are mostly dogs and cats, I've brought various guinea pigs to be blessed over the years (Gilbert's 2014 certificate of blessing hangs over his pen), and there was a rabbit one year.
