This is the season for animal blessings, and if you miss out on getting your four-legged friend blessed at All Hallows Episcopal Church two weeks ago, Davidsonville United Methodist Church is offering another opportunity Sunday.
"All pets/animals are invited to attend with their owners, even those very special 'stuffed' animal/friends," according to the DUMC newsletter.
Sunday's blessing of the animals will take place at 4 p.m. in the Green Cathedral. Pets should be leased if appropriate.
Anglican churches often hold pet blessings on or around St. Francis' feast day, which fell on Oct. 4 this year. St. Francis of Assisi is known as the patron saint of animals and the environment.
