Rev. Neddy Astudillo invited animals to worship on World Communion Sunday at Parroquia San Jose (a Lutheran and Presbyterian Latino congregation in southern Wisconsin). Wild animals, farm animals, and pets were all blessed as part of God's creation. This World Communion Sunday worship expanded the notion of what is typically understood as World Communion to include all the earth and its creatures. Thanks be to God!
