AN ALL FAITHS THANKSGIVING BLESSING OF THE ANIMALS

November 20, 2016 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

| Free

The Unitarian Church of All Souls in New York City will celebrate its 17th annual ALL FAITHS THANKSGIVING BLESSING OF THE ANIMALS service on Sunday November 20, 2016 at 3:00pm in the church sanctuary.
In the spirit of St. Francis of Assisi, Patron Saint of the Animals, the service honors the kinship New Yorkers feel toward their animal companions and all animals. We will celebrate this connection with music, readings and a short homily by the Rev. Tracy Sprowls.
The highlight of the service will be the Blessing of the Animals when congregants are invited along with their companion animals to be blessed. Participants are invited to bring a photo or stuffed animal to be blessed for those pets that cannot attend the service. We request that all animals be either in carriers or leashed.
The service is open to animal lovers of all ages and their companion animals. Admission is free. A freewill offering will be received and donated to NEIGHBORHOOD CATS, an organization that works with New York City communities to humanely control its feral cat populations through TNR (trap, neuter, return).
