          Blessing of the Animals

The Folly Beach United Methodist Church is again hosting the annual Blessing of the Animals on October 7, 2023 starting at 10:00am on the front lawn. Pet Helpers is helping with this event. Donations will be accepted – monetarily to Pet Helpers, and/or with bags of cat/dog food, or cat litter.  

All pets are welcome!!!  Pets should be either leashed or kenneled /caged while waiting for their blessing. Animal lovers around the planet will gather for annual services of the Blessing of the Animals, a custom originating in the 13th century, attributed to Saint Francis of Assisi, the Patron Saint of Animals, who held a great sense of care and respect for each creature.  This is customarily held on October 4, the Feast of St Francis of Assisi, or the first Saturday or Sunday immediately following.  

In addition to giving folks a chance to share the pets they love with others, it gives us the chance to raise awareness about endangered and abused animals.  By doing the blessing of the animals, it’s more than just our trying to bless them. It’s about acknowledging the blessing that they are to us. Animals often give without expecting anything in return, expressing qualities of love, generosity and patience.
