A Welcoming and Affirming Church

Blessing of the Animals Service

On Sunday, August 14th at 10:00 am, the First Baptist Church and the Park Congregational Church will jointly hold a Blessing of the Animals Service on the First Baptist lawn.

All animals must be tethered or caged. Cash offerings will be donated to the Worcester Animal Rescue League (WARL). Attendees may also donate supplies to the WARL, such as comforters, blankets, towels, and pet toys for dogs and cats. You do not need to bring a pet to attend the Blessing of the Animals service. Everyone is welcome–not just pet owners or church members.
In case of rain, the service will be postponed until August 21. Should that be the case, our two congregations will have a regular worship service together in Gordon Hall on the 14th.
