Blessing of the Animals will be Sunday, Oct. 9

Blessing of the Animals
Join your animal companions for our annual Blessing of the Animals service, outdoors, at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday, Oct. 9.  Our animal friends help us in so many ways, so it is fitting to pray that they experience God’s love and care. We will also pray that we can be loving and responsible caregivers for these friends who give us unconditional love.

…that we may love our neighbors…

Benevolent, merciful God:  When we are empty, fill us.
When we are weak in faith, strengthen us.
When we are cold in love, warm us, that with fervor we may love our neighbors
and serve them for the sake of your Son,
Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord.
Amen
