Blessing of the Animals

Julie Borden, Worship Associate

Human beings are deeply connected to other animals. Today we welcome our animal friends into our virtual service and celebrate their many blessings.

The event takes place online this year so people and their beloved animal companions can participate from the comfort of their homes. Simply bring your pets to the Zoom virtual gathering! If you do not have live pets/animals, a favorite stuffed animal can also be blessed.

We will also be honoring beloved animals who have passed on. Please email the name of a beloved pet who has died, and a picture or short video (8 seconds or less) to revmatthew@emersonuuc.org, by Friday October 16.

Following the service is our “Virtual Coffee Break” when those who wish to remain may join others for conversation in Zoom Breakout rooms.
