Blessing of the Animals

Our first Blessing of the Animals service was held on Sunday, September 14th at 2pm in the afternoon. It was a service on the church lawn, including people and pets. The pets that grace our homes are not only among the things we care deeply about, but our hopes and dreams for a better world should encourage us to think about non-human creatures as well as our own kind.

If you missed our Blessing of the Animals Service, we’re offering a version for home use below.  Read through the service and offer the blessing for your pet or pets.  It’s a great activity for the whole family!
