Willow Grove Announces Blessing of Pets

SCOTCH PLAINS—Pet lovers of all ages are invited to bring your dogs, cats, hamsters, gerbils and hermit crabs to the Willow Grove Church lawn on Sunday, Oct. 11 between 4 and 5:30 p.m. to receive a blessing from Pastor, Rev. Cynthia Cochran-Carney.

If your pet is sick or has died, bring a picture and this pet can be included in a blessing.
