Williamstown, MA - St. John’s Episcopal Church, Williamstown, invites the public to a Blessing of Animals during a simple service of Evensong at 4:30 p.m. on Sunday, October 4th.
All creatures great and small will be welcomed to take their places in and among the pews, which make excellent corrals for animal companions. Dogs should be on leashes, and cats in carriers. Participants who wish to remember a deceased pet may bring a photo or keepsake for that purpose.
The music ensemble Wintergreen will be guest musicians at this service. The folk trio of Larry and Alice Spatz and Jared Polens performs a mixture of traditional and contemporary folk music from Britain and America on a variety of instruments including hammered dulcimer, guitar, mandolin, psaltery, and bass.
A free-will offering will be received for the fund for strays and wild animals at Greylock Animal Hospital.
St. John’s is located at 35 Park Street, and is wheelchair accessible. Information: 413-458-8144.
