Blessing of the Animals 2017

Sun, Oct 15 • 4:30 pm

Courtyard (Loper Chapel if it rains)

This year's Blessing of the Animals will take place Sunday evening Oct 15, from 4:30–5:30 pm. Dogs, lizards, birds, teddy bears, turtles and other beloved pets are welcome (dogs on leashes and critters in carriers, please!) The event will take place outside in the Courtyard. In case of rain, it will be in Loper Chapel.

Everyone, regardless of pet ownership, is invited to join in the fun of celebrating all God's creatures. You may also bring a photo of a beloved animal who has passed away or wouldn't do well in such a gathering.

Rev. Kit would love a few youth assistants to help organize and lead the service. Love animals? Interested in being involved? Let Kit know or email her at

Thanks! Hope to see you there!
