On Tuesday 20 March we held our inaugural Sampford House Blessing of the Animals, where we prayed for the animals of the world and remembered God’s call to care for and protect them. We also blessed our pets and gave thanks for all that they mean to us, and the joy they bring to our families. In addition to the girls of Sampford House and their parents, over 30 excited dogs and 4 very brave cats attended, and the Mansion Lawn was a scene of laughter and smiles as people met and introduced their pets to those gathered. Thank you very much to all who attended, and I hope everyone enjoyed gathering together and celebrating our pets.
