The annual Blessing of the Animals will take place on Sunday, August 19, at 12:15 p.m. at St. Mark’s Lutheran Church in historic downtown Delaware, Ohio.
Pets will receive a blessing and a collar that reads, “I have been blessed.” For safety reasons, please keep pets inside a carrier or leashed at all times. Water and bowls will be available to keep the animals comfortable.
The service, lasting approximately 20 minutes, will be followed by a reception. Guests can enjoy lemon aid and cookies while meeting some of the Humane Society of Delaware County’s cats and dogs.
Prior to the Blessing of Animals, St. Mark’s Lutheran Church will also host guest speaker, Mary O’Connor Shaver, in their Adult Education Forum. Shaver resides in Lewis Center and has been extremely active on the issue of banning puppy mills and dog auctions. She also volunteers with the Coalition to Ban Ohio Dog Auctions. She maintains a dual focus in her work by actually visiting and investigating puppy mills and auctions, as well as spending a lot of time at the Ohio General Assembly working on legislation to outlaw this activity.
The Adult Education Forum begins at 9:15 am, and will be held in between St. Mark’s Lutheran Church’s 8:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. services.
St. Marks Lutheran Church is located at 28 East William Street in historic downtown Delaware, Ohio.
