A community-wide Blessing of the Animals will be hosted by Cox Memorial United Methodist Church at 1 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 2. The service will be held in the church parking lot at the corner of Middle and Central streets in Hallowell. All pets are welcome either leashed or in a carrier.

The service will include a time of anointing for each pet as well as an opportunity to memorialize special pet friends who have shared our lives in the past.

In the event of rain, the service will be held in the Fellowship Hall of the church.
