Blessing of Pets

Pet blessing

On Friday, October 3rd we will offer a blessing of pets. This custom is in remembrance of St. Francis of Assisi, whose feast day is on October 4th . Please bring your pets to receive a blessing at 7:00 p.m. in front of the church doors. In case of inclement weather, the blessing will be held in the gathering space. All pets are welcome but please consider the wisdom of bringing aggressive animals.

“All praise to you, Oh Lord, for all these brother and sister creatures.”

Canticle of the Creatures, St. Francis of Assisi.

2014-15 Commitment Form

There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit

distributes them. There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord.

 There are different kinds of working, but in all of them

and in everyone is the same God at work.
