Blessing of the Animals

Sunday, October 6
4:00 PM

Join St. Thomas Church for our annual Blessing of the Animals, a service of celebration and thanksgiving for the animals that give us so much joy. Each animal will be blessed by clergy and receive a special tag for their collar, crate, cage, or aquarium.

Note: Animals that sting, bite or scratch should be contained. If you cannot bring a living creature, we will bless photos or stuffed animals.

All things bright and beautiful, All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful: The Lord God made them all.

from Hymns for Little Children, 1848, Cecil Alexander
