Group of pets

Are you a pet or animal lover? Do you have your own furry or feathered friends at home, or know others with animal companions? Cat and dog, pig and bird, lizard and spider, hamster and fish (in water, please!) - All are welcome to join us on Friday, September 30th at 3:10pm in the church parking lot for a special Blessing of the Animals. 

This special event commemorates the feast of St. Francis of Assisi, where animals have been blessed since the middle ages. No saint is more closely associated with animals than St. Francis of Assisi. He rejoiced in the value and beauty animals bring to creation. All pets are welcome to bring their humans, of course! We hope to see you and your furry, feathered, fuzzy, and finny companions and pals of the animal kingdom!
