Annual Blessing of the Animals service…
The Animal Ministries group of First Congregational Church (137 Algoma Blvd., Oshkosh WI) is proud to host its third annual Pet Blessing Service on Saturday, October 1 from 10 to 11 am. This service will be held in the church’s Fellowship Hall. If you have a pet or pets, and would like them blessed for the role they play in your life, please bring them to this special service being held in honor of pets, and St. Francis of Assisi, the Patron Saint of Animals and the Environment.
All pets should be well-behaved, current on all vaccinations, and either leashed or otherwise contained in a carrier, pet crate, etc., depending on the type of pet you have. If you don’t wish to bring your pet, or for some reason can’t, but want to attend the service and still have them blessed, feel free to bring a photo of them.
We encourage you to let your friends and neighbors know about this event so that they can also participate. This year we have also invited working dogs from our community and will be blessing them at this service before they go out to do the very special, much-needed work that they each do. This event is free, but goodwill offerings will be graciously accepted. We look forward to seeing you and your pet(s) on Oct. 1.
