Animal-BlessingLove your pets? Wish there were some way to invoke God’s blessing for them? You’re invited to come and celebrate the 8th Annual Pet Blessing on Sunday, October 6th at 2:00 pm on the grounds of St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church, 505 Bullseye Lake Road, (corner of Bullseye Lake Rd. & Valparaiso St.) Valparaiso IN.

Pets of all faiths, denominations, breeds, sizes, and healthy or ill, are welcome (on a leash or in a secure cage, please)! We will remember and celebrate the life of St. Francis of Assisi, patron saint of animals, and the environment with a short service of lessons and a blessing prayer over each animal.

A voluntary donation to benefit the Porter County No-Kill Animal Shelter will be appreciated by our animal friends and their caregivers. See their website at for a list of items

Refreshments will be served. Come join us in this inter-species community celebration! For more information please contact the church office at 219-462-4946.
