BLESSING OF ANIMALS

As autumn arrives, a procession of animals, everything from dogs, cats and hamsters are led to church for a special ceremony called the Blessing of Pets.  This is usually done near or on the feast day for St. Francis of Assisi.  For single householders, a pet can be a true companion.  Many people arrive home from work to find a furry friend overjoyed at their return.  Many a senior has a lap filled with a purring fellow creature.   The love given to a pet, and received from a pet, can draw us more deeply into the larger circle of life, into the wonder of our common relationship to our Creator.   Fr. John will be blessing animals, Saturday October 3rd at 10:00 A.M. in the Church parking lot.
