Animal Blessings

We will gather with all ages and all species for our virtual Animal Blessings on Sunday, October 4, 2020, at 1:00 PM. We will bless your pets (or pictures of your pets), or your dear stuffed animals.

This service draws from the inspiration of St. Francis of Assisi. In this Unitarian Universalist version we will take a moment to grieve the animals that have died, share our gratitude for the animals that make our lives better, bless the animals that make their home among us, and commit to treating our animals like partners not things.

We will be collecting an Offering for Orphaned Pets, Inc., a nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation with the sole purpose of helping unwanted domestic animals find compassionate, caring homes. Each pet is rescued from a shelter and fostered in the home of a volunteer until adopted. The advantage is that the pet lives in a family setting. They are an all-volunteer organization and depend greatly on donations from the public. Text “UUCM animal blessings” to 73256 to give using your mobile device. This number will never send unsolicited texts to you. To cancel further messages, text STOP. If you need assistance with text giving, text HELP. Standard text message and data rates may apply.
