Blessing of the Animals – October 2 at 4:00 p.m.
Bring a furry friend and meet on the front lawn of the Historic Church as we celebrate St. Francis, a man devoted to the care of the poor who was also known for his care of creation and love of animals. It is customary to hold a brief Blessing of the Animals service on his feast day. Treats will be on hand for animals as well as humans. All types of pets are welcome, as well as visitors and friends of our members. It is a fun time to meet the extended members of our families!
