Thirty-one animal companions received blessings on Sunday, October
15th, in a special community outreach event offered by Tewksbury Congregational
Church. The 30-minute Blessing of the Animals
included a brief introduction, a testimonial, a cheerful song (to which many of
the dogs howled), and an individual blessing for each pet. All in all, 19 dogs, 8 cats, 1 ferret and 3 stuffed
animals received blessings and were sent home with special treats.
This first annual event was a great success in the eyes of TCC’s Board of Deacons, who coordinated the service with Reverend Norman Bendroth.

Please save the date for TCC’s Blue Christmas worship service on Thursday, December 21st.
