Blessing of the Animals!

The Church celebrates the Memorial of St. Francis of Assisi on October 4th.  He is the Patron Saint of several things, but is especially known as the Patron Saint of Animals.

On  Tuesday, October 4th, at 5:30pm, Fr. Summers will bless all the animals you bring to him! 

Assuming we have good weather, we will gather on the lawn outside the Rectory on the “big parking lot” side.  If the weather is inclement we will seek shelter in front of the school.

Please bring each and every pet you have: dogs and cats, things that crawl on the ground or fly in the air, fish, night or day creatures – all are welcome are worthy of God’s continuing care and blessing.

Your care for your pets redounds to your own credit.  You are showing good stewardship of the earth and of all that fills it.
