Blessing of the Animals

On Sunday, October 1st at 4pm, Pastor Liz with the help of the youth group will hold a Blessing of the Animals Service. Congregation members, friends and neighbors are invited to bring their pets and gather outside on the Horne Street Lawn for the service. There will be water and “clean up stations” provided. All animals will need to be properly restrained (leashes, crates, bowls, etc). For those unable to transport their animal, they may bring a picture or simply the name of the animal to receive the blessing. There will be a brief liturgy for all and then each animal can come forward and receive an individual blessing. This is a great time to welcome and invite our neighbors! Print Flyer
