Animal Blessing This Sunday

Submitted By: – Click to email about this post
Early October is the traditional time when we remember St. Francis and his commitment to the care of creation and in particular, of animals.
If you have a beloved pet, please join us this coming Sunday, October 8 at 2 pm at the Nehalem Bay United Methodist Church (36050 10th Street, Nehalem) for a Blessing of the Animals. We’ll have a very brief program and will then pray a blessing on each pet or service animal, anointing him or her with oil.
Please call the church (503-368-5612) and let us know if you’re bringing a non-mammal. The pastor is still happy to bless your pet; she’d just like to know if a large insect or reptile will be involved!)
We hope to see you there.
