Come And See The Blessing of Pets And Animals

The offering of blessings is significant and customary in the Orthodox Christian tradition. Reflecting the transforming and sanctifying grace of the Holy Spirit within the Body of Christ, these blessings act as manifestations of God’s presence and activity in our lives as witnessed in everything we encounter in creation.


“…all things are gifts from above intended for our good and to our delight.”


Thus, we bless all sorts of things, dedicating and sanctifying them (and ourselves) to the glory of God and our loving communion with the Lord. To bless animals, especially our pets, is a realization that all things are gifts from above intended for our good and to our delight.


As God’s children, the blessing bestows on us the obligation to be good and faithful stewards of that which has been given to us in love. In blessing our pets we make a commitment to care for the life entrusted to us (be it dog, cat, hamster, gecko, rabbit, bird, ferret, fish, or any other pet).


Come And Join Us

The service of blessing involves the reading of Scripture, prayers of supplication, and the traditional sprinkling with Holy Water. We invite you to come join us at our Blessing of Pets and Animals on October 22 (details below).
