During this season of Zoom church, a number of cats and a few dogs have made an appearance during services. In honor of St. Francis, on Sunday, October 4, following the 11 a.m. liturgy via Zoom, we’d like to bless them online, and give thanks for their presence in our lives. All animals and their people are welcome!
We will celebrate the Feast of St. Francis — the saint who preached to the birds and called a wolf his brother — with the blessing of the animals following the 11 am service this Sunday, October 1. The blessing will be around 12:30 pm, giving those who live nearby a chance to go and get their animals; however, you are also welcome to bring well-behaved pets to church that day. Tell your friends!
