Please join us on Sunday (29 September 2019) at 11:00 AM for our annual Blessing of the Animals worship service for all ages. Our featured guest speaker is Christie Chapman of WERLA (Wildlife Education and Rehabilitation of Louisiana).
Just before the celebration of the Feast Day of St. Francis on the Christian calendar, we are delighted to offer one of our most beloved services of the year — the Blessing of the Animals.
At this time of year only, your furry, feathered, finned, or scaly friends are welcomed into the sanctuary to celebrate our shared place in the interdependent web of all existence.
We do ask that you bring your animal friend on a leash or in an appropriate carrier as even the most docile animals can be unpredictable in strange circumstances.
You know your pet better than anyone and if yours is “not ready for prime time,” feel free to bring a photo or stuffed animal in lieu of the real deal.
We’re honored this year to welcome Christie Chapman of WERLA and our give away the plate collection will go toward WERLA.
