A Blessing of Animals ceremony will be held on Sunday October 1, 2017 during both the 8:00 AM and 10:00 AM services at Trinity Episcopal Church, 119 Forest Avenue, Cranford, New Jersey. Inspired by St. Francis of Assisi’s legendary love for animals, Blessing of the Animals has become an annual event celebrating the bond of love and companionship shared between people and their pets.  “Anatole France’s quote "Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened." says it best,” said Reverend Andy Kruger, Trinity’s Priest-in-Charge.

Everyone is invited to bring their pets to receive a blessing. Please keep cats and birds in carriers and cages and keep dogs on leashes. People are also invited to bring in photographs of pets that are too ill to attend or are deceased to receive a blessing. Small children who don’t have pets may also bring in stuffed animals to receive a blessing. In addition to the blessing, there will be information about low cost spay and neutering. For additional information, please call the Trinity Episcopal Church office at (908) 276-4047 visit http://www.trinitycranford.org/.
