Blessing of the Animals

Many churches hold annual animal blessing services, a time to give thanks and bless our companions in life. Animal blessings originate out of the Roman Catholic tradition, however, many Unitarian Universalist congregations have adopted this practice and made it a uniquely UU type of blessing. Our seventh principle which states that we are all part of an interconnected web of existence is the underlying motivation for many of these services.
