OCTOBER 7, 2018 Blessing of the Animals

“Bless All Creatures Here Below”

The community’s pets (and their owners) are invited to participate in A Blessing of the Animals service in Celebration of the Feast of St. Francis. Francis of Assisi was traditionally known as an advocate for living in harmony with nature, and stories are told of his preaching to the birds of the air. To commemorate his life, we bless all God’s creatures with a brief word of prayer…and a treat!
