Interfaith 'Blessing of the Animals'
Submitted By Rev. Dr. David Borglum
Pets and all animals will be blessed and prayed for at a "Blessing of the Animals" interfaith service on Saturday, October 1 at 2 p.m. at Fremont Congregational Church. All are invited to bring their pet live or bring a picture or some other symbol of him/her/it.
We also will tell stories of ways that animals have blessed us and honor their sensitivity, intelligence, courage, and their Random Acts of Kindness.
While this service has its origins in the Christian tradition and is usually celebrated near the Feast Day of St. Francis of Assisi, it also will celebrate the teachings of caring for animals found in all major faith traditions. So that we will know how many chairs to set up, please call the church at (510) 937-3970 to confirm your intention to come.
