Blessing of the Animals at Shepherd of the Hills Lutheran Church

Are you a pet or animal lover?  Do you have your own furry or feathered friends at home, or know others with animal companions?  All animals are welcome to join Pastor Jack at Shepherd of the Hills Lutheran Church, Sparta, NJ on Saturday, October 2, 2021, at 10 AM for a special Blessing of the Animals.  The blessing will take place in the parking lot rain or shine.  We invite all animals (leashed, caged, crated).

This special event commemorates the feast of St. Francis of Assisi, where animals have been blessed since the Middle Ages.  No saint is more closely associated with animals than St. Francis of Assisi.  He rejoiced in the value and beauty animals bring to creation.

All pets are welcome to bring their humans, of course!  We hope to see you and your furry, feathered, fuzzy, and finny companions October 2nd.  

For more information, please contact the church office at (973) 729-7010 or email office@sothnj.org.  For more information regarding this event and others, please follow us on www.sothnj.org/ or www.facebook.com/SOTHNJ/
