Pet blessing Oct. 13

A young boy holds a 9-week old golden retriever puppy.

All creatures with fins, feathers and fur are invited to a special event.

Sun Prairie United Methodist Church and Our Savior’s Lutheran Church will host an Animal Blessing at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 13 at Birkinbine Park in Sun Prairie. Bring your pet for this special blessing. All our welcome. All pets must be leashed or caged.

A Blessing of Animals, in many congregations, witnesses to God’s and the Church’s love, care, and concern for creation. As we recognize our mutual interdependence with God’s creatures, the Church’s witness of stewardship of creation is strengthened. It is also a service with special appeal to children.
