Blessing of the Pets
October 3, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pmFree
Winnetka Community House will host a secular community blessing for pet lovers in the Arches Garden at the WCH located at 620 Lincoln Avenue in Winnetka on Tuesday, October 3, 2017 from 4:00–5:30 p.m.
Winnetka and North Shore pet owners are invited to bring their leashed dog, cat, reptile or caged birds and bunnies for a blessing of health and happiness. In addition to giving their pets a little extra love, guests will enjoy family-fun activities and light refreshments in the Children’s Garden.
“The blessing of pets is a beautiful tradition in many faiths and was one of my favorite days at church as a child,” said WCH President and Executive Director Bob Thomas. “As a new leader at the WCH, I saw an opportunity to bring this tradition to the secular community and provide pet lovers, as well as all of our neighbors, with an opportunity to connect at our facility.”
In addition to the gathering and family-friendly festivities, attendees can enter to win a free prize. Winnetka Community House is a destination for learning, growing and connecting for people (and even pets) of all ages. For more information on the pet blessing please call 847-446-0537.
