The Blessing of the Animals


Animal-Blessing

Love your pets? Wish there were some way to invoke God’s blessing for them? You’re invited to come and celebrate the 8th Annual Pet Blessing on Sunday, October 6th at 2:00 pm on the grounds of St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church, 505 Bullseye Lake Road, (corner of Bullseye Lake Rd. & Valparaiso St.) Valparaiso IN.

Pets of all faiths, denominations, breeds, sizes, and healthy or ill, are welcome (on a leash or in a secure cage, please)! We will remember and celebrate the life of St. Francis of Assisi, patron saint of animals, and the environment with a short service of lessons and a blessing prayer over each animal.

A voluntary donation to benefit the Porter County No-Kill Animal Shelter will be appreciated by our animal friends and their caregivers. See their website at portercoanimalshelter.com for a list of items

Refreshments will be served. Come join us in this inter-species community celebration! For more information please contact the church office at 219-462-4946.
