Blessing of the Animals – Multigenerational Service (No Religious Exploration)
October 1 @ 10:15 am - 11:30 am
You are invited to bring your favorite furry, hairy, feathered, scaly, or shelled pet to the Sunday morning service at FUUSN. We will celebrate our kinship with all living creatures in the spirit of St. Francis of Assisi and share one of his iconic stories of compassion. This will be a service for all generations, and we encourage you to invite pet-loving friends to join us!
You can bring your beloved creatures along or bring a photo of them; we will also offer a memorial for pets who are no longer with us (who can also be represented with a photo).
Deciding whether to bring your pet or bring a photo? If you can say yes to these things, please bring ‘em:
- I can keep my pet in my physical control (via leash, carrier, box etc.) indoors for 45 minutes
- My pet won’t be overly stressed by the presence of other animals or humans
If you are someone who is allergic to animals but would like to be present for the service, we recommend that you wear a mask and sit in the pews near the rear of the sanctuary to limit your exposure.
