Blessing of the Animals
Sunday, October 21, 2018
Bring your pets, large or small, to St. Brendan’s Annual Blessing of the Animals! October is the month of the Feast of St. Francis, when we celebrate our beloved pets and honor them with a special blessing service. And yes, for first timers to our blessing event, you are permitted to bring your animals inside the sanctuary with you, where pets can choose to ‘people watch’, ‘meditate’ during the service or ‘sing along’ with St. Brendan’s choir.
The first blessing will be during our regular 10:00 am worship service. Please have your pets either on a leash or in a carrier for their safety. The Prayers for the Animals (both present and deceased) will occur towards the end of the worship service.
The second blessing will be a blessing service only and will begin on or around 11:30 am and end at noon. All pets and their humans are invited to attend either service.
