The 3rd Blessing of Animals took place in the grounds of Ayia Kyriaki Church on the Feast of St. Francis ( 4th October ).
This is a joint service with the Latin Catholics and Father Jim and The Reverend Canon Anthony gave each of the 18 dogs and their owners an individual blessing following a short service . We were extremely happy this year to welcome to the service our Bishop, The Right Reverend Michael Lewis, Bishop of Cyprus and the Gulf, with his wife Julia and one of their dogs Hew. Father Carlos senior Priest from the Catholic Church was also present. All dogs were very well behaved and seemed to enjoy meeting their friends again.
