For many of us, pets are part of our family. They provide companionship, acceptance, emotional support, and unconditional love. For many, the cherished human-to-animal connection is the
simplest way to connect to the unconditional love of God. It becomes a touchstone to use when seeking a deeper connection to Spirit.
We offer a number of ceremonies and events to honor our beloved pets.
Annual Group Blessing
(St. Francis Festival | 1st Saturday in October)
The Annual Animal Blessing at Unity Church of the Hills is a special ceremony of love and gratitude for our wonderful furry (or not so furry) friends. Each animal is individually blessed and goes home with a goodie bag of treats.
If you are interested in celebrating the birth of a new life or the adoption of a new family member, it would be our joy to assist you with a special ceremony.
Celebration of Life Services
It is often very healing to celebrate the life of a beloved pet through a sacred ceremony. The UCOH Pet Garden near the entrance to the property creates a lovely setting in which to honor your sweet friend.
