A Blessing of the Animals will be at 2pm Sunday, Oct. 15, in the PEACE Lutheran Church parking lot.

The Blessing of the Animals is a traditional ritual that marks the feast of St. Francis of Assisi. St. Francis is the patron saint of animals and nature-lovers.

Bring your dog, cat, horse, goat, chicken or any other beloved animal companion to receive a special blessing. We will sing some simple songs that celebrate “all creatures great and small.” Especially, we celebrate the loving God that created us all!

This short service will be conducted outdoors, in our parking lot beneath a spreading maple tree. Please bring any appropriate kennel or other confinement for your animal. Chairs for the humans and treats for the pets will be provided!

At PEACE Lutheran Church, we love our pets and enjoy bringing them for this fun and casual ritual. We celebrate their role as our companions in God’s amazing and sacred creation.
