Blessing of the Animals

September 18, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Everyone’s pets, whether they be small or large, with feathers, fur, or fins, along with their families and friends, are invited to gather at the Bulldog Shelter at Stroud’s Run on Saturday, September 18th, at 11:00 a.m., for a Blessing of the Animals celebration.  This service witnesses to God’s and First Presbyterian Church’s love, care, and concern of creation.  As mutual interdependence with God’s creatures is recognized, the Church’s witness of stewardship of creation is strengthened.  For the harmony of Athens community, it is asked that all mobile pets be leashed or caged.  If pets cannot be transported, stuffed animals or other reminders of your friend can be substituted.
