SUNDAY, OCTOBER 2
4 p.m. - Blessing of the Animals
4:30 p.m. - Evensong
Maple Road entrance
Our pets don’t come to church for many good reasons. However, they are parts of our family, part of who we are. Our church family should have the opportunity to get to know the four legged, finned, or winged creatures that are so important to us. On October 2 we will have the opportunity to share these friends with each other at the St. Francis Day Blessing of the Animals.
We will say a few short prayers together, have our pets blessed and receive treats and a certificate of blessing. No matter what genus or species your friend may be we hope that you will bring it by, and if you currently have no pets, come and enjoy the bedlam, the joy, and the opportunity to thank God for this wonderful creation.
