‘Paws For A Blessing’ At St. Michael Church

St. Michael Lutheran Church in Wellington invites the entire community to bring their beloved pets to the church to be blessed on Sunday, Oct. 19 at the 10:45 a.m. service.

Loyal companions with fur, feathers, scales or shells are welcome to come. Pets must be leashed or confined in a carrier. There will be a 10:30 a.m. ceremony outdoors for those bringing horses for a blessing.

During the service, there will be an opportunity to recognize a pet that has left us. Come, bring a picture and remember the pet you loved.

At the event, the church will also be honoring service animals who go above and beyond their duty. Paws4Liberty, a local nonprofit that helps returning soldiers with disabilities regain their independence through a loving relationship with a service dog, will be represented at the special service.

St. Michael Lutheran Church is located at 1925 Birkdale Drive in Wellington. The church is situated at the corner of Birkdale Drive and Forest Hill Blvd. If you have questions, or intend on bringing a horse or a large animal for the outdoor blessing, call Ryan Arnold at (561) 236-4180.
