Blessing of the Animals Service

Sunday October 3rd, 10.00am

Relocated to Athelstone Uniting Church due to forecast weather conditions

A service of thanksgiving and blessing for the pets and other animals that bring us joy and help us to live fuller lives.

Bring along your pet, a photo of an animal you love or miss, or a photo of an endangered species you care about.
For the safety of other animals and humans, all animals must be on a lead, in a secure pen or a carrying container.
BYO drinking water & snack for you and your pet!
And don’t forget your face mask.

You are invited to donate to the work of the Animal Welfare League.
Consider bringing gifts of cash, blankets for cats, or treats and toys for dogs or cats.

The service will also be available online via Zoom (see below). So if you can’t come in person, connect via Zoom and make sure your animals can be involved!

Please note that Daylight Saving Time begins tonight!
