St. Michael Church Will Bless The Animals Oct. 7

St. Michael Lutheran Church in Wellington will hold its fourth annual “Paws for a Blessing” Sunday, Oct. 7 with service beginning at 4 p.m. Come early to have your photo taken with your pet. The service will be held indoors in the comfort of air conditioning in the church’s new sanctuary.

Everyone is welcome to attend with or without a pet. Pets attending must be leashed or confined in a carrier.

“Paws for a Blessing” is also a fundraiser for the Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League, which will be present with their petmobile filled with loving pets looking for forever homes. Everyone attending is asked to bring canned pet food to help fill the Peggy Adams pet food pantry. Thrivent Financial for Lutherans will be matching funds raised at this event so that every $3 raised in food will be matched by $1 in cash for Peggy Adams.

If you cannot attend but would like to donate, your donation can be dropped off Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the church (in Fellowship Hall across the drive from the sanctuary) or Sunday morning. Sunday services are held at 8:30 and 10:45 a.m.

St. Michael is located at 1925 Birkdale Drive, on the corner of Forest Hill Blvd. and Birkdale Drive just west of the Mall at Wellington Green near the Wellington entrance walls. For more information, call Donna Tagg at (561) 371-3201 or the church at (561) 793-4999.
