A busy summer ministry began for Rev. Kit Lonergan the first week in August. In addition to baptism, Rev. Kit led a joyful “Blessings of the Animals” following the communion service on Sunday, August 8. The enthusiasm of the parishioners was evident as 74 people and 20 pets attended. George McNamara’s homemade doggie treats, (“Scuttle Pups”) and Tina Read’s cranberry muffins (for the folks!) were delicious hits and contributed to a longer than usual fellowship after the service.
