FAIRFIELD — Dogs, a couple cats and a pair of bearded dragons joined the congregation at Trinity Episcopal Church on Sunday afternoon when the church hosted its annual Blessing of the Animals.

Socially distanced on the lawn outside the church, pets sat with their owners before a procession to receive a blessing from the Rev. Peggy Hodgkins.

The Rev. Robert Kwan provided musical accompaniment, while soloist the Rev. Rob Laughton sang, “All Creatures Great and Small,” among other selections.
