We will celebrate St. Francis Day this Sunday with the Blessing of the Animals after the 11 o’clock service in the front garden on Fifth Avenue at 10th Street (around 12:30 pm). This is a special celebration of all creatures great and small so please join us. You are also welcome to bring well-behaved pets to church that day. Less well-behaved pets are welcome in the garden. Tell you friends! This is a wonderful outreach to our neighbors. Here is a link to photos of animal blessings from prior years. Here is a calendar for programs and special events This Fall at The Church of the Ascension.
