Order of Service

Online and In Person – 10 am Sunday

Rev. Nica Eaton & Sam Dickerson

What’s better than curling up with your animals on a Sunday morning in your pajamas? Today we celebrate and bless the animals in our lives, while wearing pajamas to Chalice if you wish. You may bring your pets to Chalice if they’re able to be in public spaces safely, or show them to us on screen.  Please send us a photo of any beloved animals who have passed, whom you wish to memorialize. Send pictures to admin@chaliceuu.org. We look forward to celebrating the difference animals make in our lives, while we cozy up with one another.
