In honor of the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, Rev. Monica will visit Sedona’s dog parks to offer interfaith prayers for pets and their people. On Thursday, Oct 5, she will be at Posse Grounds Park during the 8 a.m. Yappy Hour, and at 5:30 p.m. she will be at Sunset Park.
Rev. Monica points out that she is owned by two elderly cats who were blessed in church many years ago. “I know that it’s not always convenient to bring pets to church, so I’m more than happy to meet pets and their people in the parks for prayers.”
On October 8th, during St. Andrew’s’ Sunday services at 8 a.m. and 10 a.m., she will conduct a Blessing of the Animals. At St. Andrew’s’ services all kinds of animals will be welcome, and each will be blessed individually. Each pet must bring a human and be on a leash or in a carrier. Large animals and those that are not housebroken will be accommodated outdoors. Owners must be prepared to clean up after pets. More information is available at 928-282-4457.
