Blessing of the Animals Scheduled for Oct. 8

All creatures, with the strict exception of snakes, are welcome at the Blessing of the Animals on Sunday, Oct. 8 at 11 a.m. in the Lower Courtyard of Esperanza!  Treats and water will be provided for non-human animals, and blessings will abound. In this brief worship, we will celebrate the goodness of God’s creation, reaffirm our commitment to care for it, and bless the animals whose lives we have the gift of stewarding.
