Melbourne, July 29 (ANI): An Anglican church in Canada has come under fire after its vicar gave Holy Communion to a dog.

The Canadian priest gave the Host, which is considered by Christians to represent the body of Jesus Christ, to an Alsatian cross called Trapper, the Daily Telegraph reported.

St Peter’s Anglican Church in Toronto has since been deluged complaints from Christians all over Canada.

Donald Keith, the dog’s owner, said he had taken his pet to the church because he had been told animals were welcome.

He said that because he was newcomer, the vicar invited him up in person to receive communion. (ANI)
