Lancaster Church Sets Animal Blessing

The term “holy cow” could take on a whole new meaning Sunday.

Parishioners are invited to bring their dogs, cats, birds, rodents and any other domesticated pet to Faith United Methodist Church, 5505 Broadway, Lancaster, for a Blessing of the Animals Service at 2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 2.  The event is a Christian tradition in honor of Francis of Assisi, the patron of animals.

Pastor Tom LeBeau will offer individual animal blessings in the parking lot, weather permitting.  Otherwise, blessings will be held in Fellowship Hall, located in the church’s basement. 

Church officials ask that all animals be either in carriers or leashed to ensure the comfort and safety of all attendees.

There also will be a time in the service to remember animal friends who have died in the past year.  People are invited to bring pictures of those pets as well. 

Animals and humans are invited to stay for refreshments after the service.

For more information, call 683-5293.
