Blessing of the Animals is Oct. 12

Statement as issued by Trinity English Lutheran Church:

What is a blessing? A blessing is a gift from God and can also be a prayer that asks for God’s care. Christians throughout the world have used the day set aside to remember St. Francis of Assisi for blessing of their pets, asking for God’s care.

The Family Life Committee of Trinity English invites you to a Blessing of the Animals on Saturday, October 12, 2013, at 9:30 a.m., in Trinity English’s parking lot off Washington Boulevard. We will bless your pets. Animals should be on a leash or in carriers. Photographs of aggressive animals may be brought for a blessing. Contact Pastor Dan at (260) 426-3424 or by e-mail at for more information.
