Decatur, Georgia- Decatur Presbyterian Church announced its annual Blessing of the Pets event to be held on Saturday October 15, 2022 starting at 10AM. All in the surrounding communities are welcome to come, bring a pet and have the pet blessed by a pastor. Everyone is welcome. The Blessing of the Animals, traditionally held in October, is often associated with St. Francis of Assisi who is known as the patron saint of animals and ecology. Decatur Presbyterian Church also recognizes how pets are an important part of our families and this day gives everyone a chance to appreciate how pets are vital part of our spiritual lives. Please bring your own chairs for this event.
“The Blessing of the Animals is a wonderful opportunity for people of all backgrounds in all our surrounding communities to come together, meet and greet our beautiful animals that we love so much and confirm their blessings by the Spirit of God.” said Senior Pastor, Rev. Dr. Todd Speed at Decatur Presbyterian Church.
