Sunday 4 October – Dogs in church

Today is the Feast Day of St. Francis of Assisi. That makes it the patronal festival for St. Francis’ church in Byrness. And it’s the day we are allowed to take our pets to the service, which also doubles up as Harvest Festival. I decided to take Rupert and Percy from my menagerie, and they got blessed by the vicar, and also an Anglican Franciscan friar from the Holy Island, who did the sermon. One girl brought her pair of goldfish to be blessed! It was standing room only, a chaotic but very warm, enjoyable service.
