Blessing of the Animals

Blessing of the Animals Sunday, October 1st at 10:30 a.m. Worship

We will celebrate the blessing of the animals in our regular worship celebration. There will be a general animal blessing and then offer to bless pets individually. A section of the sanctuary will be reserved as a “no pet zone” for people with allergies.

Remembering Deceased Pets

Pets that are no longer with us still fill our hearts with memories. Please bring a photo of your pet and we will remember them and give thanks. We will have a “photo board” to display pictures of past pets.

Stuffed Animals: Young children are invited to bring their stuffed animal pals for a special blessing during Children’s Time.

Here are some helpful guidelines

-Bring friendly and well-behaved animals.

-Nervous, aggressive, or unavailable creatures can be represented via photos, stuffed animals, drawings, or statues.

-There will be a “Photo board” for posting photos of pets that cannot be there in person.

Animals should be under control and restrained by appropriate devices (leashes, etc.) or carriers.
