A Massachusetts church is scheduled to launch a new monthly worship service for dogs, the Associated Press website reports today.
Calvary Episcopal Church in Danvers, Massachusetts will offer later this month (May 2010) its first "Perfect Paws Pet Ministry" aimed at giving area pooches and their owners improved odds at getting canines into heaven.
The Danvers church plans to hold the service on the third Sunday of every month, complete with communion for the humans and special blessings for pets.
Rev. Thea Keith-Lucas said dogs will have a say during service, because barking will not be banned.
