“Blessed are you, Lord God, maker of all living creatures.” - Franciscan Animal Blessing

The bond we share with the animals we choose as pets is a sacred one. No matter our age, those relationships affect us deeply, and bring us (and them) so much joy.

For our Spring Virtual Art Show, we invite you to submit pictures of your pets! The picture does not need to be new, and preferably, includes you with your pet, but if that isn’t possible, that’s ok. In this digital age, so many of us have pictures of our pets right on our phone, so look through your photo album and find your favorite.

Please email your favorite one (or two) for inclusion in this online gallery. Be sure to include your name, the name of your pet, and a little bit about the photo.

Send them as jpg files to: Rhonda Mitchell at
