Alki United Church of Christ (Alki UCC) invites you to bring your dog, cat, llama, guinea pig, chicken, honey bees, parakeet, lizard (you get the idea) to a special “Blessing of the Animals” worship service on Sunday, September 29 at 10:00 am. Alki UCC is at 6115 SW Hinds in West Seattle.
Important! All pets must be on a leash or in an appropriate carrier/cage.
Children of all ages are also welcome to bring their stuffed animals or photographs of a beloved pet for a blessing.
This custom is conducted in remembrance of Saint Francis of Assisi’s love for all creatures.
Please note: Due to potential pet dander allergies, we will be removing the pew cushions for this service. Feel free to bring your own cushion if you would like a softer seat.
