When Fiona was licensed as Vicar at St Bart’s in October 2015, the young people who welcomed her asked her (very publicly) if she would have a pet service. Fiona agreed at the time, and then had to keep her promise. Rather than do this all on her own, she enlisted the help of the Confirmation Group that have been attending classes at the vicarage for several months. They planned, organised and then led the Pet Service, which took place in the normal Family Worship on Sunday 26th June 2016. A full house of parishioners, children, dogs, rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters and even a tortoise was present, to praise God for his creation and see every pet blessed by name.
The young people will be confirmed by Bishop Geoff on Thursday 7th July at 7:00pm.
