Ivy Chapel United Church of Christ will be celebrating our annual “Blessing of the Animals.” This is a life-affirming, sacred event. All creatures of God are welcome! Ever since our inaugural “Blessing” (which took place here in 2001 merely days after 9-11), this deeply meaningful gathering has been a beloved tradition. Each autumn, we gather to praise God for blessing this world with miraculous life –in all its glorious forms! If you have a treasured creature with whom you share your home and your life, we urge you to take part in this marvelous celebration on Saturday, Sept. 17. Bring your life companion(s) for a memorable afternoon on Holy Ground. Blessings will be offered at the rustic altar and cross near our outdoor pavilion. There will be complimentary refreshments for all of God’s creatures to enjoy. Join us!

Click here to RSVP (not required) on Facebook. Be sure to like our page while you’re there.

Questions? Drop us a line, and we’ll fill you in on the details.
