About the Service:
The service will be held outside on our lovely grounds. In the event of rain, the celebration
will be held inside our chapel. The brief service praises God for all He has done in creation
and then we pray that God will bless each of our beloved animals with health, healing, and
life. Each animal will be sprinkled with Holy Water and given a blessing card with a St.
Francis medal for their collar.
After the Service, a free raffle will be held for a pet carrier and dog bed, thanks to our
friends at PetSmart. Refreshments will be served for those attending and their pets. So
plan to stay around and enjoy some fun times with fellow pet lovers!
(All animals must be on a leash or in a carrier)
“I will build my Church”, Jesus announced upon Peter's confession. But as He went on to describe the foundation of that building project—how he “must suffer many things” and “be killed”—Peter cannot comprehend how anything can be built upon a rejected stone—upon Christ crucified. And so Jesus takes Peter on a journey to see the pattern on the mount.
“Build all things according to the Pattern”, the LORD told Moses. Sacred architecture must follow a revealed pattern because it's not merely the shape of a shelter, but the shape of the people, the shape of the cosmos, the shape of the heart.
