UUCWI blesses the animals | RELIGION NOTES

The gifts we receive from “the critters” and our deep connection to all life will be playfully and seriously honored during the 10 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 30 service at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Whidbey Island, 20103 Highway 525, Freeland.

Anyone is invited to bring the animals who share their lives to the service. But only bring pets that are comfortable with other people and friendly to other animals. For safety, dogs should be on a leash, cats in carriers, horses, goats and camels should be haltered, as should alligators, etc. Weather permitting, a portion of the service time will be out on the lawn.

Children’s religious classes and child care are available. Go to for information.
