Church to Offer Worship Services For Dogs

Calvary Episcopal Church will offer later this month its first “Perfect Paws Pet Ministry” with the aim of giving local dogs and their owners improved odds at getting canines into heaven.

The Massachusetts church will launch a new monthly worship service — for dogs.

Services will be on the third Sunday of every month, complete with communion for the humans and special blessings for pets. Dogs will get special treats.

Invitations are for well-mannered, leashed dogs, but dogs will have a say during service because barking won’t be banned .

The church says that owners can submit a paper prayer if their pets are sick, not good around other dogs or deceased. Prayers can also be offered for other types of pets.

    This has to be the most backwards, stupid, and ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard in my life.

      Interesting what the biblical precedence would be. Can’t think of anything off hand.
