When we gather for worship on Sunday, October 9, we will follow in the tradition of St. Francis and the Blessing of the Animals.
In church that day, you are invited to bring photos of your beloved animals, living or across the Rainbow Bridge, and Pastor Jason will bless them during worship. You are also invited to bring stuffed animals, whicj will also be blessed.
Don’t think we are forgetting live animals! For those of you who will be worshipping via YouTube, Pastor Jason will offer a virtual blessing for your beloved pets. You will want to have some blessing water with you as you participate in worship. Your stuffed animals and pets in photos may also receive a blessing at this time.
And for everyone, let us pray for good weather! All are also invited to come to the park directly across from the church at 12:00 noon that Sunday, October 9 with your pets; Pastor Jason will bless them there, weather-permitting. All animals should be appropriately leashed or crated as need be. In the event of inclement weather, we will look to reschedule this part of our blessing.
