Blessing of the Animals

Blessing of the Animals

Meow! Woof! Squeak! Cluck! Chirp! Cheep!
We’re having a “Blessing of the Animals” service!
Linked to Saint Francis Day, this will be a service of thanksgiving and blessing for the pets and other animals that bring us joy and help us to live fuller lives.

All are welcome! All are invited to bring along your pets or a photo of an animal you love or an endangered species you care about.
All animals must be on a lead or in a secure pen or carrying container for the safety of other animals and humans.

Can’t make it ‘in person’ but still like to join us and have your animal blessed? Join us online via zoom…

Here is the worship booklet which contains prayer responses and song words (helpful for those attending online)

This special service is brought to you by our Athelstone Messy Church and our Sunday morning teams.
