Some would say the bible says no, the past Pope said yes, but what do you say?
Now a church in Massachusetts is giving pets and their parents the opportunity to cover their religious bases, according to an article in USA Today’s Paw Print Post:
Do pets go to heaven? A church in Massachusetts and a Guideposts author are among the believers who would say yes.
Calvary Episcopal Church in Danvers, Mass., will offer later this month its first “Perfect Paws Pet Ministry” aimed at giving area pooches and their owners improved odds at getting canines into heaven. The church plans to hold the service on the third Sunday of every month, complete with communion for the humans and special blessings for pets. Dogs will get special treats. For now, it’s only for dogs, but special prayers can be offered for other kinds of pets. Rev. Thea Keith-Lucas tells The Salem News dogs will have a say during service because barking won’t be banned.
