Blessing of Animals this Sunday September 29 @ 12:30 in outdoor chapel area across parking lot from church upper entrance (weather permitting) - part of our remembrance of St. Francis of Assisi.
Bring your safe and well mannered (relatively speaking!) pets and join us this Sunday. There is plenty of space to spread out with your pets if they are not as social and to walk afterwards. This time together following a brief opening of scripture and prayer may include individual conversation, prayer, and blessing as well as photo ops. Our dog friends will also receive, according to wishes of their owners, lots of love and attention from Pastor and our youth. This is also a great opportunity to meet new people in the community and some very special members of their family. – small animals should be in containers / cages and dogs should be leashed. Also, we will be collecting donations of dog and cat food for Daily Bread Food Pantry. Even if you cannot stay for the Blessing, there will be a box for pet food donations in the narthex (lobby) that morning. See you Sunday!
