Bless your pet this Sunday at the Crystal Beach Market

The Crystal Beach Market site is hosting a unique event on Sunday Dec. 2/2018, there will be a Blessing of the Animals Service.

“It’s open to everyone (of all faiths) in the Niagara region, and its neighbours who would like to bring their pet to be blessed,” a press release from the Crystal Beach Market said.

Reverend Bill Thomas of Stevensville, a minister at St. John’s Stevensville United Church, will be performing the blessings for each individual pet.

The group is suggesting a $3.00 donation for the service as well as a can of pet food for the local animal shelter.

“All animals welcome, big and small,” the release says. “Skittish animals should be well secured on leashes or in carriers, aggressive animals such as dogs need to be muzzled if a danger to others.”

The event takes place Sunday Dec. 2/2018, at the Crystal Beach Market site, corner of Erie Rd. and Ridgeway Rd., the address is 3878 Erie Rd., Crystal Beach. Timings are from 12:30 p.m. to 4 p.m.
