Blessing of the Animals
—Rev. Dr. Victoria Weinstein
During these pandemic times of uncertainty and isolation we loved and appreciated our animal friends more deeply. Join us as we celebrate their place in our lives and honor the memories of those who have left us this past year.
Please take a look at this Wish List from the Northeast Animal Shelter in Salem, for whom we are gathering donations this weekend.
We will be introducing all the pets who came into our lives over the pandemic period and welcoming them by name, so please bring them even if they are wiggly puppies! For those who would like to, we will also be remembering our beloved animals who have died since the last Blessing, so feel free to bring a photo or item representing them to place on our altar table.
We will be together in church and on Facebook Live. The recording of the service will also be on our website homepage. Join us for a Zoom Coffee Hour at 11:30am (see the Weekly Update for Zoom information).
Our offertory donation link can be found here.
