Blessing of the Animals


The unconditional love we give and receive from our pets can draw us more deeply into the larger circle of life with our Creator. Please bring your pets and come join us for a special blessing. Let us celebrate the bond of creation together!

Saturday October 4th 10:00am
Christ Episcopal Church
74 Park Ave
(Corner of Park Ave & Bloomfield Ave)
Glen Ridge, NJ

The blessing will take place inside the church so inclement weather is not a problem. The recipient of all donations on the day will be the Pound Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) of Montclair, NJ.

PAWS will attend so come and learn more about the valuable and important work we do. People are encouraged to bring donations on the day to help PAWS who are always in need of canned and dry food for cats and dogs, toys and cat litter. Monetary donations are also welcome.
