Blessing of the Animals – Oct 8
This blessing is held at St. Mark’s United Methodist Church at 4 pm on the labyrinth of the Meditation Area (located directly across from the preschool playground). Well-behaved animals of all kinds, on leashes or in carriers or cages, are welcome to attend! Feel free to decorate collars, leashes or carriers with bows or flowers.
If your animal’s temperament, health or size does not lend itself to attending, you may bring his/her picture to the blessing service instead.
Everyone is welcome and there will be free photos taken after the service of your pet or you with your pet. Location: 1431 W. Magee Road @ La Canada.
Wishlist Wednesday: Hoofs n Horns Farm Sanctuary, Tucson
Hoofs n Horns is committed to helping those animals who arrive in need, who are abandoned, neglected, or just worn out. Many arrive near the end of their lives or sometimes days of their lives. All the animals have one thing in common — others gave up on them.
Show them some love and find out what items are needed most.
