Blessing of the Animals

Is your pet friendly and would enjoy a few extra people? Is your favorite animal in need of little extra loving attention?

Bring your pets (or a photo of an animal you love) for a blessing on October 1st, either within worship (9:30 am) or after worship in Peace Garden, depending on what’s best for you and your animal.

This practice is inspired by Saint Francis–remembered on October 4th–who was an example in caring for God’s whole creation.
