Blessing of the Animals - Saturday, October 5, 10am-Noon
In honor of the special relationships we have with our pets, we will have a “Blessing of the Animals” on Saturday, Oct. 5, from 10am to Noon.
Friends and neighbors are encouraged to bring their personal or family pets to share God’s blessing with them. This follows the feast day of St. Francis of Assisi, who loved all God’s creatures and followed God’s example of kindness, mercy, compassion, and love for all creation.
While we love our pets and want to recognize God’s love for all creation, and especially these creatures that make our lives special, a couple of reminders. // All dogs must be on leashes and other pets (cats, rabbits, reptiles, etc.) should be in carriers. // If your pet does not like large groups of people, show your pet some consideration and keep it home. // Remember to pick up after your pet just as you would at any other time. // We will have water stations for your pets. // Children without pets may feel left out – they are // encouraged to bring stuffed animals to be blessed! // Please share this information with family and friends, and make it an extra special day!
