United Church in UP is having our annual Blessing of the Animals Service on Sunday, August 21st at 10:00am. As is our tradition, the service will be held in the Curran Apple Orchard on Grandview Dr W. We will have folding chairs set up, but please feel free to bring your own chair or blanket if that is more comfortable for you. We recommend that you wear a hat and remember sunscreen.
Pets, restrained by a crate, cage, leash or bowl (i.e. fish!) are welcome to join us! As we will spend a moment in our prayer time remembering the pets we’ve loved and lost, you are invited to bring photos of your heavenly pets along, too.
Wherever you are on the journey, whether you have hands or feet, paws, claws or fins, come join us as we remember and honor all God’s creatures! Remember to invite your friends!!!!
There will be a picnic in the church courtyard after the service. Hamburgers and hotdogs will be provided. Please bring a dish to share.
