Celebrating a Blessing of the Animals
In the Roman Catholic tradition, October 4 is the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi. St. Francis (1182-1226) was a monk who founded the contemporary order of Franciscans. He was known for his vow of poverty and his special connection to animals, among many other things. Many Unitarian Universalists have picked up on the Catholic tradition of blessing animals, particularly pets, on this day. St. Francis may receive little attention at this service, but a number of congregations will bless pets at the service. Some people bring their pets to church, others bring photographs of their pets; others have their pets blessed by naming them. Some congregations celebrate this service at other, variable times of the year.
Join us Sunday, October 10 between 8:30-9:30 AM for a hands-on blessing and then join us at 10:30 on Zoom with a photo and post their names in the chat.
We will lift up our animal friends / family in a special way.
UUCLV will hold Virtual Worshipful Gatherings on Sundays until such a time that we can come together in-person again.
You can join us at https://us02web.zoom.us/j/84823621393 on Sunday mornings.
The Zoom room opens at 10:25 AM. Worship begins at 10:30 AM
