Blessing of Animals, Sunday, October 1st, 2:00 p.m.

Blessing of Animals October 1st a 2 pm

We are delighted to offer a blessing to our animal companions, large and small. This half-hour service will take place in outside on the front lawn.  In the event of rainy weather we will gather inside. We will gather (or regather after the morning’s worship) at 2:00 P.M.

The gathering will last approximately 45 minutes, allowing for 15 minutes of settling-in time.  If you would prefer to bring a photo of an animal companion or farm animal to be blessed you are welcome to do so.  Please bring dogs on leash and cats in a carrier. Other companions or creatures in whatever carrier is appropriate for them.

Please share this with neighbors or friends who may also like this opportunity to have their special animal companions blessed. Our prayer will be one of thanksgiving for these creatures in our lives and a petition for God’s help to care for their well-being.

We thank God for the gift of this creation and for the blessing of companions, human and other, to share this journey.
