St. Francis Day and Blessing of the Animals
Sunday, October 1, 10:00 am Service
St. Francis Day will be celebrated with the Blessing of the Animals in a Choral Matins (Morning Prayer) service, including a children's homily. All are invited to bring their pets, stuffed animals and photos to be blessed by the clergy inside the church during the service. This is a wonderful opportunity to worship as families and to invite friends who may not attend regular services. The Nursery will be available. Click HERE to see the photo gallery from last year's service. Holy Communion will be given in the Chapel for those who wish to remain after the service.
