PET BLESSING AND PET MEMORIAL SPONSORED BY THE BODHI SPIRITUAL CENTER’S ANIMAL MINISTRY.  CALL FOR PHOTOS AND VIDEOS.

All furry, finned and feathered animals are welcome on Saturday October 3, 2009 at 2:00 pm for a Pet Blessing. One by one each animal will be blessed by a certified spiritual practitioner.  Treats and refreshments to follow. This is one in a series of events sponsored by the Bodhi Spiritual Center’s Animal Ministry.

The next event will be a Pet Memorial scheduled for Friday evening November 6, 2009  at 6:30 pm. Treasured pets will be remembered and their lives celebrated by music, memories, a tribute video and photos in the  Animal Ministry’s 2nd Annual Pet Memorial.

Tears, joy and a heartfelt celebration of the lives of pets will fill the room.
The memorial will feature a tribute video honoring all the pets that are being remembered.

“After our first Pet Memorial, I was convinced that these types of ceremonies are necessary and honoring of the deep lifetime bond we have with our animal friends who have passed on.” says Karen Gerbig from the Animal Ministry.

Those interested in participating in the pet memorial should contact the ministry and provide photos, video footage and stories about their beloved pet. Send information to the Bodhi Spiritual Center c/o Animal Ministry, 2524 N Lincoln Ave, Chicago, IL  60614 or email: photos and videos of your deceased pets and remembrances to animalministry@bodhispiritualcenter.org.

Healing prayer, pet adoption and ministering to the needs of the Bodhi Spiritual Center’s pet guardians are also part of the ministry’s activities throughout the year.
