Gatherting Of The Animals

The Island School
“Gathering Of The Animals”, with Marsha Gladhart, Worship Associate, Penny Brewer, and Suzanne Dupont, SSC Coordinators.
We take time once a year with this celebration to give thanks and bless our companions in life—cats and dogs, birds and chickens, turtles and fish and so much more! This ceremony also acknowledges that our lives are made fuller and richer by the creatures that inhabit the Earth with us, not just those that live with us.
We come together to acknowledge how our lives have been blessed by our animal friends and to express our happiness and gratitude that they make this so. This will be an outdoor service at The Island School. Your animal companions are welcome to attend on leash or in their carrier.
