The Blessings of Animals

00:00 / 7:14

by Rev. Christina Leone-Tracy and Rev. Leah Hart-Landsberg

Henry Bergh, the founder of the ASPCA and fellow Unitarian, was born 206 years ago this week! Come celebrate his legacy with an Animal Blessing service. Well-behaved pets, on leashes or in crates, are welcome to join you today, or bring a stuffed animal or photo in lieu of pet. After our short all-ages service, we’ll bring animals outside (weather permitting) for an individual blessing of each animal. A special collection for the Fox Valley Humane Association will also be held today, so bring a check, cash, or an item from their wish list to donate —
