Blessing of the Animals –
Sunday, October 7, 2:00pm
We begin with a short service outside and then move inside to the chapel where each pet will be individually blessed. Favorite stuffed animals and pictures of pets no longer living or too shy in a crowd can also receive a blessing. Treats for pets and humans will follow the blessings. Please join us on the lawn by the parking lot located on 76th and Newton. There will be a collection of pet food and kitty litter to be given where needed.

Chaplain Edward Holland, an advance care planning volunteer facilitator with Park Nicollet Health Services who served as the coordinator of Spiritual Care and Grief Services for Park Nicollet Methodist Hospice, will engage us in a conversation about advance care planning and health care directives.
