ALL CREATURES: Bishop Stuart Robinson led Sunday’s Blessing of the Pets service at Christ Church, West Goulburn amid glorious sunshine.

Or perhaps the many dogs gathered for the Anglican Diocese’s Blessing of the Pets were just yapping at each other.

Either way, Sunday’s gathering at Christ Church, West Goulburn was a convivial affair with some 50 people attending and an unknown number of dogs and cats. There were no guinea pigs,mice, ferrets or other unusual animals.

Bishop of Canberra/Goulburn, Stuart Robinson admitted it was a “bit Vicar of Dibbly-ish.”

“It’s a way of connecting with the community, includingthose not previously involved with the church,and providing a ministry and service in a way that will benefit,” he said.

Bishop Robinson said just as humans were called to be stewards of God, caring forand loving pets was an expression of this.

Sunday’s roll-up clearly appreciated theold Franciscan tradition.
