RSPCA and Halifax Minster on #WorldAnimalDay Sunday October 2nd

Local RSPCA and Halifax Minster Celebrate #WorldAnimalDay with Fun and Quirky, unique Animal Blessing Service this Sunday!

 

THE RSPCA Halifax, Huddersfield, Bradford & District branch in partnership with Halifax Minster are set to hold their annual animal blessing service in celebration of World Animal Day on Sunday 2nd October.

(A St Bernard is blessed by Trish Boyd at a previous service)

This annual service celebrates World Animal Day by giving attendees the chance to bring their beloved pets along to an animal friendly service, with reader Trish giving each animal their own blessing.

The light-hearted service will include light refreshments for people and their pets and takes place at 2.00pm on Sunday 3rd October at Halifax Minster, Causeway, Halifax, HX1 1QL.

 

Fay Gibbons, Digital Fundraiser said “World Animal Day is such a special day and what better way to celebrate than with this fun and unique service, in the beautiful settings of Halifax Minster. It’s a one-of-a-kind experience to have our furry friends join us in the pews, so why not join us and be part of this special occasion!”

 

All animals are invited to attend, but dogs must be kept on a lead and small animals (such as cats, hamsters, rabbits etc) kept in carriers. All animals will be blessed in their seat and the service usually lasts around 45 minutes. Photos can also be blessed for anyone who has lost their pet or would find it too difficult to physically attend.

The RSPCA animal centre in Halifax is a self-funded, local charity and is hoping to raise awareness of the animal welfare work they do within the Halifax, Huddersfield and Bradford areas. All proceeds raised on the day will be split between the RSPCA branch and the Halifax Minster.

Halifax Minster was built some 900 years ago by Benedictine monks from Cluny, and it is that Benedictine tradition which shapes its ministry today: with daily worship; a place for education, culture and civic engagement; and a place of hospitality. The Minster belongs to the whole community: to the Christian community; to those of the other faith communities; and to those who have no faith. Everyone is welcome to come and experience the rich depth of heritage and spirituality. Visitors and new members looking for somewhere to worship regularly are both invited to come and join us for quiet services during the week, and to hear the Minster choirs and organs perform at weekends, as we join the Saints and Angels in the eternal hymn of praise to God the creator. The Minster serves Halifax and the borough of Calderdale, but we are also part of the worldwide Christian community. We are part of the Anglican Diocese of Leeds and particularly the Huddersfield Episcopal Area, and we have international links with Halifax’s twin town of Aachen, in Germany, and our mission partner, the Cathedral Church of St Peter, Kowak, in the Diocese of Rorya in Tanzania. The Minster is also the spiritual home to the Duke of Wellington Regiment and Association, now subsumed into the Yorkshire Regiment.
