Animal Blessing at Panagia Greek Orthodox Church, Cohasset November 9
The Nativity-Assumption – the Panagia — Greek Orthodox Church on Jerusalem Road in Cohasset will hold an Animal Blessing on Saturday, November 9 from 11am to 1pm on the church grounds.
Pets and service animals: dogs, cats, birds, hamsters, and more, can be blessed. The Blessing Service will begin at 11:30 am. Refreshments will be served. Treats will be available for dogs and cats.
“In the Book of Genesis, God commanded Noah to bring every living thing into the ark to protect them. Our pets and service animals not only are part of our families as companions, but they are creatures, made by God,” according to Fr. Tony Vrame, Pastor of the Panagia Church.
The Animal Blessing is offered in honor of St. Modestos, a Greek Orthodox saint. St. Modestos lived in the seventh century in Jerusalem. As bishop there, he became known for a miracle in which many animals were healed, thus making him the patrol saint of animals in the Eastern Orthodox Christian Church.
The Nativity Assumption Church – the Panagia – is a parish of the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Boston. The parish has stood on Jerusalem Road for many years, in the Pope Memorial Church built in 1900 by Col. Albert and Abby Pope in memory of their son, Charles Linder Pope.
