Join us this Sunday October 2nd in our outdoor chapel area (across parking lot from main entrance) at 9:30 AM. Family and friends (especially the furry kind) are encouraged to attend. (This is part of the commemoration of St. Francis of Assisi in churches around the world) "Well mannered" pets should be on leashes or in cages. There is plenty of room in chapel area and also on the lawn above to spread out for a short service of thanksgiving followed by individual blessings of pets. If you have school age children who want to be part of this brief service, you as parents are responsible to get them to their Sunday School classes. While I will need to return to class before 10 AM, you are welcome to hang out with one another or take a walk somewhere else. This is a great opportunity to meet newer people to our faith community or perhaps meet up with long time St. Andrew's folk with some very special members of the family. Looking forward to Sunday.
