Wilson College will hold its annual Blessing of the Animals at noon on Wednesday, Oct. 2, on the main campus green. The blessing, which is conducted by the Wilson's chaplain, the Rev. Derek Wadlington, is open to the public. All friendly pets in cages or on leads or leashes are welcome. Those attending are asked to clean up after their pets.
A brief scripture reading and general prayer will be following by an individual blessing of any animals owners wish to have blessed. If they are unable to bring their pet to campus, those attending may bring pictures of pets to be blessed. If a pet has died, a memorial blessing can be given.
In the event of rain, the ceremony will move to Laird Hall.
