It’s my first Annual Blessing of the Animals at Good Shepherd! We’ll gather with our four-footed companions at 3:00 on Sunday, October 10 on the church lawn. In previous Blessings of the Animals, I’ve blessed lots of dogs, a few cats, a gerbil, a gecko, and a 250 pound hog, among others of God’s creatures. There’s plenty of room on the lawn for more and different representatives of God’s creatures to join us!
Members of the congregation and the community are invited to bring their pets for a short, informal service and an individual blessing in the tradition of St. Francis of Assisi.
