Blessing of the Animals

By September 29, 2014Parish Events

Screen Shot 2014-09-29 at 1.31.57 PMOn Sunday at the 10AM service we will have the annual animal blessing. The service will be held in the parish hall, and you’re welcome to bring whatever pet whom you belong to. There is no Sunday School this week, as we like to have the kids with us—and more importantly—with their little fluffy (or scaled) friends.

This service is a celebration of St. Francis Day, but even more than that, it is a reminder of God’s Creation and how God’s unconditional love for us is sometimes best reflected in the unconditional love that our pets have for us.

If your animal does not “play well with others,” you’re welcome to let Fr. Rick know and he can do a more personalized blessing at your home.

If you do not have a pet, you are welcome to bring your favorite stuffed animal to church! (They ARE a little quieter than the other kind…but they are just as much fun to cuddle.)

The 8AM service will be sans non-hominids.
