Blessing of the Animals

Blessing of the Animals

As autumn arrives, people in various places may notice something odd: a procession of animals is led to churches for a special ceremony called the Blessing of the Animals. In our Scriptures, the act of blessing means 'the imparting of power or life.' The person performing the blessing mediating that power from God or Christ to the person or the animal involved. To bless is more than an expression of goodwill and caring. To bless is to impart God's power in person! 
 
Animals refer to all the living creatures people bring to worship - such as cats and dogs, birds, reptiles, and fish, domesticated or wild. People not able to bring an animal may wish to bring a picture of an animal they love or and endangered species in the wild. The custom is conducted in remembrance of St. Francis of Assisi's love to all creatures. All Creatures of our God and King are welcome in worship on October 1.

All are invited to bring beloved pets to worship for a special blessing at the beginning of worship. Please bring everything necessary to share worship with your pet while respecting others.
