Blessing of the Animals

Rev. Kristen Kuriga

This Sunday, join us to celebrate the blessing of the animals. This is an opportunity to honor the connection we have with our beloved pets, and to express our gratitude and well wishes for the friendship and care they bring to our lives. There will also be a time to honor and remember pets who have died. Please bring your pets to church with you if they are comfortable around people, other animals, and children. You can also bring a picture of your pet to receive a blessing. If you are not comfortable around a variety of animals, this may be a Sunday that is not the right fit for you. Trust your own wisdom about your comfort level and that of your pet.

“Blessed are the animals. Blessed are the creatures who live with us and need our care. Blessed are the mammals and the reptiles and the birds who teach us we are not alone. Blessed are all living things from whom we learn to love.” -Rev. Maureen Killoran
