Calvary Episcopal Church Holds Worship Services For Dogs

By Robert Paul Reyes


"While no one really knows if all dogs go to heaven, Calvary Episcopal Church is giving area pooches and their owners improved odds with a new monthly worship service.

dogThe first Perfect Paws Pet Ministry takes place on Sunday, May 16, from 5 to 5:30 p.m., in the church`s Parish Hall.

After that, the church plans to hold the pet service on the third Sunday of every month, complete with communion for the humans who wish to partake and special blessings bestowed on pets and people alike." Read More

Cats are devilish, always up to no good, but dogs are angelic beings, always eager to please their masters.

If I walked into a church and a blue-haired old lady had a black cat on her lap, I would run away in terror. But a church that welcomes dogs, must be a heavenly sanctuary from the trials and tribulations of life.

My dogs are spiritual beings, they sense when I`m feeling down, and they lick my face until I smile. Their slobber has more healing properties than holy water from the Vatican.

God bless this church for considering the spiritual needs of our canine friends. If dogs, and even cats, aren`t welcome in heaven, I`d rather go to hell.
