Blessing of the Animals

Come celebrate the interdependent web of existence! Today we will honor traditions associated most famously with Saint Francis of Assisi, and the less well known Saint Dwynwen and Saint Blaise, as we acknowledge the importance of and bless our animal companions.

All two-, four-, six-, eight-, and no-legged individuals are welcome, including those with fur, feathers, fins, shells, or scales!

To ensure everyone’s safety, please ensure all “special guests” are properly restrained or contained as needed.

We begin gathering at 10:30 am for coffee, snacks, and socializing with the service to begin at 11:00 am.


If you are unable to attend in person due to illness, mobility issues, or distance, please participate online, including our virtual Coffee Social, via Zoom at 10:30 am (Central). Grab a cup of coffee (or your morning beverage) and chat with our online and in person community. Then watch the service live:
