Best Blessed Beasts

This Stamford church will bless your bird, cat or dog.

from Reader's Digest Magazine | May 2007

Polly want a blessing? Then take your bird — or dog or cat — to St. Francis Episcopal Church in Stamford, Connecticut, every third Sunday of the month at 4 p.m. When you receive Communion, your pet receives a blessing. Named for the patron saint of animals, the church accepts “prayer” noise of all kinds — squawks, barks and meows.
