Blessing of the Animals

Grace First Presbyterian Church and P'nai Or Long Beach welcome the entire community to an Interfaith Blessing of the Animals, in partnership with South Coast Interfaith Council.

Everyone is invited to bring your pets, photos of pets who have passed away, and/or a pet's ashes for a special blessing of remembrance. Clergy of various faith traditions will offer brief reflections and prayers remembering animals who could not be present or who are ill; they will also recognize animals in shelters waiting for homes or who have been poorly treated, and give thanks for all God's creatures. Following the brief Blessing of the Animals, there will be time for casual fellowship and refreshment.

For the enjoyment and safety of all participants, all animals must remain on leash or in a closed carrier while on the Church campus, as well as be current on their vaccinations.
