On Sunday, September 30, at 4:00 pm, Lower Brandywine Presbyterian Church will hold a special outdoor Blessing of the Animals Service. The Blessing is free and open to the public. All well-behaved, socialized animals on leashes or in carriers, and their human companions, are welcome.
The service will enable ‘owners’ to show their gratitude, strengthen their stewardship, and to ask God’s blessing on these beloved animals. Humans are encouraged to bring all their favorite friends with fur, fins, feathers, or fluff.
If bringing an animal to the church is impractical, pets may be represented by a picture, or by their collar, leash, harness, food, or toy. Deceased pets and animals will be remembered by the lighting of a Memorial Candle.
Participating pets must:
• Be clearly identified in the event of an escape.
• Have up-to-date immunizations.
• Not pose a physical threat to the people or other animals in attendance.
• Be walked, swum, flown, fed, and/or watered prior to the service.
Visitors are invited to come ‘as they are.’ This event will be held on the church grounds, across from the sanctuary. Human companions should bring a lawn chair or blanket to sit on. LIFT, the Lower Brandywine Youth Group, will provide homemade pet treats and water.
Donations are NOT expected. A free-will offering will be collected for Canine Partners for Life.
Lower Brandywine Presbyterian Church is located on Route 52 at 101 Old Kennett Rd, Wilmington, DE 19807, across from Winterthur, within easy driving distance of northern Delaware and southeastern Pennsylvania. There is plenty of free parking. And the building is accessible to the handicapped. (Please call in advance to set up a liaison.)
