ANGLICANS in the Orara Valley are praying for fine weather for tomorrow at 9.30am so the Blessing of the Pets service at All Saints Upper Orara can be held outdoors.

The service is open to all creatures great and small, as long as they are on leads or reins and in the case of pets like birds, mice, guinea pigs and rabbits, in cages.

Spring pet blessing services scheduled at churches around the district have been ‘dogged’ by rain and organisers are hoping this weekend will be different. Appropriate hymns will be sung, including All Creatures Great and Small and there will be a morning tea.
