Pets get blessing at annual service in Whitehorse
Church-goers can bring their pets to get blessed at Whitehorse United
Whitehorse United Church will have some special guests at today's Sunday service as the annual blessing of the animals will take place.
Church-goers can bring their pets with them to church.
"It takes place to praise God and to say thank you to God for the tremendous gift that animals are and the blessing that they are every day to us," said Rev. Bev Brazier, the minister at Whitehorse United.
The morning's prayers and hymns will be focused on giving thanks for animals. Pets are encouraged to sing — or bark, chirp and meow — along.
The service begins at 10:30 a.m. PT.
