Blessing of the Animals

Sunday, October 1, 2017 -
12:00pm to 1:00pm

In honor of the feast of St. Francis of Assisi (October 4th), we invite you to bring your furry friends for an individual blessing by our rector.  Pets are welcome at our 9:30 AM celebration of the Eucharist.  For those pets who do not want to sit through a sermon, blessings will be given outdoors at the main entrance to the church, beginning at 12:00 noon.  (If the weather does not cooperate, we will move into the Parish Hall.)  All pets will receive a medal of St. Francis as well as a packet of treats.  Pet parents can also have a cup of coffee.  If you'd like to help other pets who are still waiting to find a "forever home," we encourage you to bring dried cat food and dried dog food which will be donated to local pet rescue organizations.
