Open Pet Ministry Team Meeting

Quarterly Meetings - See Calendar

This ministry team supports spiritual growth through a shared love and appreciation of the deep spiritual and healing nature of animal companions. The team focuses on our oneness and divinity with our animal companions, increasing awareness of the needs of pets and their owners, providing resources and assistance to animals and their guardians, and offering pet loss support to our community.

We will begin collecting items for the Santa Fe Animal Shelter at Unity Santa Fe.  Watch for our “collection crate”.

If you’re interested in joining our team or would like more information, 
please contact Maurice Kuypers at
