BLESSING OF ANIMALS

posted Sep 20, 2018, 11:26 AM by Mary Tocimak

As autumn arrives, a procession of animals, everything from dogs, cats and hamsters are led to the church for a special ceremony called the Blessing of Pets.  This is usually done near or on the feast day of St. Francis of Assisi.  The love given to a pet and received from a pet can draw us more deeply into the large circle of life, into the wonder of our common relationship to our Creator.  Fr. John will be blessing animals, Saturday, September 29th at noon in the Church parking lot.  In case of rain it will be held in the Church Garage.
