LITURGICAL MINISTER SCHEDULE
Great God, you have gifted us with a presence in our lives to save us from ourselves. You have given us animals whose lives speak to us of devotion and heart of patient endurance of the power of faithful presence and of love without reason.
Give us, great and gentle God, the caring appreciation of those creatures who model for us your companionship and protection as well as your personal care. We have seen in them, loving God, the stability of commitment and the greatness of trust we owe you. For the joy they have brought us and the faith in humanity they have shown us we thank you, our God.
–A Prayer for Animals, Joan Chittister
Pax Pet Visit ministers are a group of animal lovers who know and appreciate the ability of pets to demonstrate God’s love through unconditional love and unbounded acceptance of the individual. They believe in the healing benefits that come with this unconditional love. Pets can include dogs, cats, parrots, guinea pigs, rabbits, and a variety of other animals that have lived in the owner’s home for at least six months at the time of evaluation and testing.
The mission of this ministry is to reach out to any resident in a care center facility, hospice care, or receiving any service from an existing Pastoral Care ministry. The pet handler and pet work together to comfort, amuse, warm a heart, or entice a memory or good feeling in someone and allow them to forget their pains, worries, and loneliness for a few minutes.
We have a group of certified teams which meet periodically to gain knowledge and build community with one other.
Dogs must have the AKC’s Canine Good Citizen certification and all pet teams must pass the Pet Partners certified training. Pet ministry volunteers also complete a background check, sign a code of conduct and attend vulnerable adult training.
If you would like further information on this ministry please contact, Jean Thoresen, Director of Pastoral Care, 952-405-7211. CLICK HERE to view an informational flyer.
