"Blessing of the Pets"
One of the most popular Downtown Worship Services is “The Blessing of the Pets”. Pets are indeed a very important part of our lives. Thus, Historic Trinity, located at 1345 Gratiot in downtown Detroit, invites all pet owners to bring their animals to be blessed at “The Blessing of the Pets” on Sunday, October 3, 2010 in each of the three worship services - 8:15, 9:30and 11am. The pets and their owners will meet in the tent set up in parking lot, they process down the church aisle for the blessing, and then return to the tent. Each pet handler will receive a St. Francis medal to mark this special day. Members of the police or fire K-9 Corps, or of any Police Mounted Division are invited to bring their animals to a service. The Rev. Dr. David Eberhard will preach and be assisted by the Cathedral Pastors. Also, we will have the Detroit Tiger’s mascot present, again this year - bring your camera! See you in church!
