Soon people all over the world will be celebrating the feast day of the Patron Saint of Animals, St. Francis of Assisi. It’s customary that in remembrance of St. Francis’s love for all creatures, animals are brought to churches for a special blessing. Fr. Joe will offer an opportunity to have your pets blessed on October 1 at 11am on the North Lawn of the church (right side of the church closest to St. John Court). Bring your pets & animals, whether furry, feathery, or scaly… just remember, they must be on a leash or in a carrier! In the event of rain, we will move to the pavilion.
