PLU’s Blessing of the Animals Service
Bless You—and Your Little Dog, Too!
PLU’s Blessing of the Animals Service Welcomes People and Pets
Pacific Lutheran University will hold a Blessing of the Animals service at 10:30 a.m. Monday, May 12, in Lagerquist Concert Hall.
“The Blessing of the Animals has become an annual event on the Chapel calendar,” said university pastor Rev. Nancy J. Connor. “And, as is usually the case, the pastors’ pets are the worst-behaved!”
During the service, English Professor Charles Bergman and his cat Sonny will offer the day’s reflection. Music will be provided by a special “trio”: students Anna McCracken ’14 and Emily Bishop ’14—and Pesto the hedgehog.
“There will be others participating in the service with their furry friends—all are welcome,” Connor said.
“Species-specific” snacks will be available after the service.
