Blessing of the Pets 2018

10/11/2018

 

Olivet's annual Blessing of the Animals was held on Sunday, October 7 at 2 pm in our historic chapel.  Many dogs and a few brave cats attended, along with their owners.  All were blessed by Rev. Michael Cadaret who led us in a touching and meaningful service.  The animals received a St. Francis medal, and afterwards were given a certificate of blessing in the Simpson Room where treats for all were enjoyed,  A total of $155 was raised for Animal Allies, a local pet rescue organization.  You can read more about Animal Allies here:  www.animalallies.com.

Yellow ribbons were tied around one of Olivet's front trees in memory of beloved pets we have lost.
