Universalist National Memorial Church will offer a Blessing Of The Animals on Sunday, May 24, 2015. The gathering will include a brief three to five-minute homily followed by a prayer for all animals, domestic and wild. We will close our time together with a few special words of blessing.
The Blessing Of The Animals will last for around 30 minutes and will be held on the front lawn of the church after our regularly-schedule Sunday worship service. A reception with light refreshments will follow the blessing. Please mark your calendar with the following information:
