RIDGEWOOD, N.J. — A Ridgewood church is opening its doors to everybody, especially the furry friends.
On Saturday, Oct. 14, the Christ Episcopal Church will be holding a Blessing of the Animals in honor of the Feast of St. Francis.
" Everyone is invited to bring their favorite pets: dogs, cats, rabbits, goldfish, stuffed animals," the church said. "Any beloved 'creatures,' great or small."
A short service celebrating all animals will be followed by individual blessings of each animal.
Some orphaned dogs and cats who are eligible for adoption from the Ramapo-Bergen Animal Refuge in Oakland will also be present.
The service will be held inside the church, rain or shine.
The church is located at 105 Cottage Place, at the corner of Franklin Ave., Ridgewood; 201-652-2350; christchurchridgewood.org.
