A special service for pets that bring joy or have sadly deceased or are unwell is being held in Kensal Green next Saturday.

The ceremony in St Martin’s Anglican Church in Mortimer Road, which takes place on October 15, attracted large crowds last year with visitors from all over the capital.

The event, now in its 17th year, is usually timed around the feast of St Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals.

James Hogan, who lives on College Road, founded the event when an employee at the Mayhew Animal Home. He said: “It has grown in popularity over the years and people and their pets now come from across Brent, the surrounding boroughs and beyond. We even had a couple from Paris last year - they were coming to London anyway at that time but made a special trip to Kensal Green while they were in London

as they are animal lovers but had never attended an animal blessing service before and wanted to see what it was like.

“Graham Noyce the vicar makes it a very relaxed, fun event that is enjoyed by all age groups so people come back year after year.”

The service provides a chance for pet owners of any denomination to come together and celebrate the special relationship they have with the animals that share their lives.

All well behaved cats, dogs, birds, rabbits, guinea pigs, all animals are welcome but if a pet is nervous or has died, it is suggested to bring a photo to be blessed instead.

Those unable to attend can send the name and some details about their pet which will be included in the service.

Visitors are welcome to stay for refreshments after the service.
