BLESS OUR ANIMALSOn Sunday October 4 the Gethsemane Episcopal Church in Proctorsville will hold its annual Blessing of the Animals to honor of the love and compassion that St. Francis felt toward all creatures on this earth. Pastor Todd McKee will personally bless each animal brought to the event, be they furry, finned or feathered. It will be a time to celebrate the bond between humans and animals as well as the value that pets bring into our lives. The event will be held at 1:30 at Gethsemane Church on Depot St., rain or shine. Dogs should be leashed, cats in carriers and fish in their bowls.
