BLESSING OF THE ANIMALS, OCTOBER 1 AT 3 P.M.
Come one, come all: two-footed, four-footed, feathery, large or small! We will honor creation and the relationships we share with other creatures of the world on Sunday, October 1, at 3 p.m. when we remember St. Francis of Assisi, patron saint of ecology, and offer the Blessing of the Animals. We will gather in the church courtyard, weather permitting, or inside if needed. Please be sure to care for the needs of your pets by bringing them in a carrier or on leash. You are welcome to bring a photo of a pet that has died or cannot make the trip. Children may wish to bring a stuffed animal to represent wild animals they would like to have remembered as well.
