Celebrate Life and Love with Our Pets and Members
of St. Margaret’s Episcopal Church in Sarasota, FL
Celebrating life, love, and family with members of an inviting episcopal church with St. Margaret’s of Scotland Episcopal Church in Sarasota, Florida. Animals are an important member of many families and at St. Margaret’s we want to acknowledge them and bring them into a part of our worship. At our church we have blessings of the animals where we invite everyone to bring their pets to our church to be blessed which can include dogs, cats, birds, reptiles, horses, and more. Also, for a fun gathering activity with members of our church, we have organized nature walks where our animal members are also welcome to join in the celebration. Everyone is welcome in our congregation, so please feel free to stop by and check us out, we would love to meet you!
One of our Community Outreach Programs we are involved in:
United Thank Offering
United Thank Offering (UTO) is a ministry of the Episcopal Church for the mission of the whole church. Through United Thank Offering, men, women, and children nurture the habit of giving daily thanks to God. These prayers of thanksgiving start when we recognize and name our many daily blessings. Those who participate in UTO discover that thankfulness leads to generosity. United Thank Offering is entrusted to promote thank offerings, to receive the offerings, and to distribute the UTO monies to support mission and ministry throughout the Episcopal Church and in invited Provinces of the Anglican Communion in the developing world.
