10:00 AM Blessing of the Animals Worship Service

Date: October 8, 2017
Time: 10:00 am  to  11:00 am

OCTOBER 8th – BLESSING OF THE ANIMALS

Saint Francis of Assisi is credited with the often-quoted phrase, “Pray ceaselessly, when necessary use words.”  He is also responsible for opening the eyes of all people recognizing that those other than human inhabitants of this planet are blessed by God as much as we are.  Sunday, October 8th will be our annual Blessing of the Animals Worship Service in the sanctuary. On this day each fall, our sanctuary has been gifted with many furry and finned brothers and sisters from the animal kingdom. We are an open church! Any and all animals are welcome. Where ever they are on life’s journey they are welcome here. (As long as they fit in the sanctuary we will bless them with words, prayer and music.) Invite friends to bring their pets to worship. Help us to celebrate the variety of life and God’s gifts to us all, living here in West Hartford!
