Blessings


326Many people think of God and the Church when they think of weddings, funerals, and baptisms.  However, there are many, many occasions when we might thank God or seek his presence.

Twice each year, our pastor and other clergy participate in the ecumenical blessing of the vineyards and the harvest at Sonoita Vineyards, a vintner with whom our congregation has historical ties.

There are other occasions when we might seek a pastor or members of the congregation to join with us:

  • The blessing of a home or apartment
  • Graduation from high school or college
  • Retirement
  • Litigation, criminal proceedings, or imprisonment
  • The blessing of pets
  • Entering a long-term care facility
  • Birthdays

At Dove of Peace, we remember God’s promises and presence in life’s best moments, as well at life’s darkest moments.
