Do you have special animals in your life? Perhaps a cat, ferret, or tarantula? Fish, parrot or dog? Turtle, snake or hamster? For the worship service on Sunday, May 3rd, we will be blessing all the animals that share and enrich our lives!
The worship service will have three special parts, and we need your help to make it happen.
Parade of Animals Slide Show
Take a picture of your family together with your animal companion(s). Make a sign with all your names on it and include it in the picture! Email to Rev. Leslie to be included in our Parade of Animals slide show. Email to:
Celebration of Life
If you’ve had an animal companion that has died, please send their names (and a picture if you have one) to Rev. Leslie. We will have a holy moment to celebrate their lives and grieve their passing.
Near the end of our worship service, people will be invited to have their animals together with them on screen. Plush or stuffed animals will be especially welcome! We’ll unmute the microphones and greet all our animal friends. Maybe some of them will add their greetings too!
Of course, we’ll have special music and a few readings — animal-focused of course.
Send your pictures to Rev. Leslie. Put the words Animal Blessing in the Subject Line. Email them to:
And friends, all of us at Heritage want to see your wonderful face along with your pets. Don’t be shy. It helps us all to feel more connected.
Our Animal Blessings worship service will be awesome! Won’t you join us?
