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.
