Blessing of the Animals

October 3 at 4:00 pm

Join us for our annual Blessing of the Animals service. At CCDP we welcome all creatures great and small in a service devoted to our beloved pets!

Whoever said animals can’t go to church? Bring your pet for a blessing and meet some animal lovers too!

Pets and owners of all religious backgrounds are invited so we hope you will invite your friends. If your pet can’t make it, you can bring a picture to be blessed instead.

The Story behind our

Tracking Organ

Our magnificent three manual, tracker-action organ was installed in the chancel of the church in the spring of 1982 and dedicated to the Glory of God and in memory of those who died in the First World War and the Second World War.

The organ, built by the Karl Wilhelm Company of Mont St. Hilaire, Quebec, has a classical continental design. The case is made of white oak and the pipe shades are of carved butternut. Voiced in the classic French style, its 36 stops and 50 ranks are capable of interpreting a wide variety of organ literature.

Installation required considerable changes to the chancel including moving the altar forward and arranging choir seating to either side. These renovations prompted the design and production of our award-winning Benedicite Kneelers, done in needlepoint by a dedicated group of church members.
