Blessing of the Animals 2019 Recap

Trinity United Methodist Church held its 12th annual Blessing of the Animals service May 4 at 4:00 p.m. with music, prayer and presentations by two equine organizations, each of whom brought horses.

Blue Star Equiculture

This working horse sanctuary in West Brookfield, Mass., offers retired, disabled and homeless draft horses a safe, loving home, many of whom might otherwise end up facing poor living conditions or even slaughter.  Learn more about Blue Star Equiculture.

Whispering Horse

Whispering Horse uses equine-assisted therapy to help children and adults who have physical or mental challenges, such as autism, cerebral palsy, ADHD, stroke, brain injury and many other conditions. Learn more about Whispering Horse.

Members and friends of Trinity brought their animals for a special blessing.
