Annual Blessing of the Animals

Pastor Grace Han with Philip Reynolds and John Cardone and their beloved Shelty, LADY.

Trinity United Methodist Church held its annual Blessing of the Animals in honor of Saint Francis of Assisi, Patron Saint of Animals, on September 29th.

The Reverend Grace Han, new to Trinity this July, individually blessed each pet. Retired art teacher, Ellan Moore, penned the pet’s name in calligraphy on a Blessing Certificate. If you missed it this year, mark your calendars for next year—September 28, 2019 at 9 a.m.
