Peata Therapy Dog Carol Service

Peata Therapy Dog Carol Service
The dog blessing at last year’s Peata Carol Service.

Dogs of all sizes will be getting into the festive spirit in Christ Church Cathedral, Dublin, on Tuesday December 11 at 1.15pm when the annual lunchtime Peata Therapy Dog Carol Service takes place.

The cathedral will be filled with the sound of barking as Peata dogs, as well as other dogs, will be welcomed to the service during which there will be a pet blessing. Many of the people who benefit from visits by Peata volunteers will also attend the service.

Peata is a voluntary organisation which provides a pet therapy service to caring institutions. Its visiting scheme involves approved volunteers and their dogs who generally pay weekly visits.

A collection will be taken up during the service and divided between Peata and the Peter McVerry Trust.

Tea and mince pies will be served after the service courtesy of the Friends of Christ Church Cathedral.
