All Creatures Bright and Beautiful

The Chapel garden was sunny and breezy once again as Rev. Kit Lonergan began her second summer ministry at St. Aidan’s parish.  An inclusive, high-spirited service ensued which included the annual “Blessing of the Pets,” a favorite of parishioners and animals alike.  Inviting the children present to help her administer the blessings to a bunch of doggies, one cat a mysterious hermit crab, Rev. Kit presided over a ceremony that reminded everyone that we are all, humans and animals alike, part of God’s beautiful, natural kingdom.  Peace and blessings on us all!

Welcome back to Kit’s husband Chris and their children, Livvy and Jack. Dossy the dog had a great day too! Thanks also for the book Rev. Kit recommended: Everything Happens for a Reason and Other Lies I have Loved.  (by Kate Bowler)
