Blessing of the Animals
Saturday, October 18th @ 10am
Fruitvale Presbyterian Church

The community I serve as pastor is once again doing a Blessing of the Animals Ministry Event this coming Saturday, October 18th beginning with coffee at 10am on the church patio (Coolidge @ MacArthur in Oakland 94602).

Last year was a great time of meeting new folks and checking in with old friends. A church member joked that I should be ready for either a horse or a snake. I guess I got lucky we didn't have any. Of course who knows this year? Hope you can join us with your beloved furry, scaled or feathered ones!

Here's a slideshow of last year's event and some online information about what the Blessing of the Animals is and how it makes meaning in the Christian Tradition.
