Gallery: Blessing of the Animals

The Parishes of Wallsend and Singleton have been enjoying the company of their furry friends at their Blessing of the Animals services this week.

Plenty of dogs and a brave bunny attended the service for St Francis at St Luke’s Wallsend. The rectory retrievers Raffi and Penzi also enjoyed being a part of the liturgy and procession.

A variety of dogs, cats, chicks, a fish and a turtle attended the All Saint’s Singleton Messy Church Blessing of the Animals held over the weekend. The guests enjoyed some delicious food under the trees on what was a beautiful spring afternoon. The dogs even got some treats!
