Pets’ service

pets2

This is a first for St Paul’s: in the month that remembers the patron saint of animals, St Francis of Assisi, you are invited to bring your pet to church next Sunday, October 13th, for an All Age  Service of blessing and thanksgiving. An address will be given by  Rosemary Smyth, a guide dog owner, with her dog Clint.  There will be a retiring collection on behalf of the Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind.  Also meet Nora, with her fundraising dog Maya, and Clarissa with her retired guide dog Fee.
A few rules: birds, guinea pigs, hamsters, etc. to be kept in cages, out of the way of cats, and cats and rabbits to be kept in cages, out of the way of dogs, and dogs to be kept on a leash at all times. Pooper scooper rules apply too!
