Londonderry clergy to extend blessings to area pets
LONDONDERRY — When many of us count our blessings, often our four-footed family members are near the top of our lists.
On Nov. 9, the Londonderry Clergy Association will extend good tidings to the area's dogs and cats during a special Blessings of the Pets ceremony.
The nondenominational blessing ceremony will take place at 11 a.m. in the Londonderry Presbyterian Church's lower parking lot.
Church spokeswoman Lucille Robbins said this is the first time, to her knowledge, that the historic Pillsbury Road chapel has hosted such as event.
“We wanted to reach out to our neighbors here in town,” Robbins said as she scratched the fuzzy head of Brandy, her Portuguese water dog. “Many of us consider our pets an important part of the family and this is the perfect way for us to broaden our reach.”
Members of area Girl and Boy Scout troops will assist at the event, with Sarah Rockwell, rector of the nearby St. Peter's Episcopal Church, among the local clergy to participate in the event, which is open to all area pets and their people.
