Blessing of the pets

I caught part of this on the news this morning. Animatch is holding it, I think Sat Dec 3, at the Hudson Community Centre.

1. Can anyone confirm the date for me?

2. Directions please?

Yes, the Blessing of the Pets will take place at the Hudson Pet Fair on Dec 3rd. I believe (not sure) that it will happen in the afternoon.

To get there:

Take the T-Can west.

Take "Ottawa" at the Ottawa-Toronto split.

Get off at the first exit - Exit 26 and keep your right.

You will be on Harwood. Keep going until you come to Cameron.

Turn right on Cameron, and continue to Main Rd.

Turn right on Main Road and within a minute or two you'll see the Community Centre/Legion on your left.

394 Main Road

Thanks, I do know where than is. Did not recognize that it was the Community Centre.

I do remember that they said 1pm.

St Francis is the patron saint of animals. There will be a clergy person there to bless all the animals that people bring. Depending on the turnout and particular forum, it is either done on a group basis, or each one is blessed individually.
