Blessing of the Animals

Sunday, Oct. 6 @ 5pm
Unity Park
2200 Briarhill Blvd., Highland Village

God loves all creatures. On Sunday, Oct. 6 at 5 pm bring your pets to the Community Blessing of the Animals at Unity Park in Highland Village (Next to Kids Kastle) and have your pets blessed by our clergy. This service honors and blesses all God's creatures — great and small, that make our lives special and celebrates the festival of St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals.

The Blessing of the Animals fosters fellowship within the church family and the greater community and is a way of honoring God's creation through the relationships humans have with their pets and livestock.

Any pet may be blessed; please bring them on a leash or in a carrier for their protection. If you are not comfortable bringing your pet, bring a photo or stuffed animal. Not a pet owner? Bet you know neighbors and other friends who are - help us spread the word that the entire community is invited to participate! Invite your friends and their pets, too, for this fun afternoon. Service starts at 5 pm.
