October 6 (noon): Blessing of Animals and Information Fair
Honoring the legacy of Francis of Assisi, we are holding a blessing of the animals after church on Sunday, Oct 6, noon. All kinds of pets are welcome! This is to give thanks for the companion animals in our lives; but we are also dedicating the day to being mindful of our responsibilities to animal welfare. So we’ll have information on and representatives from various local organizations doing right by animals: shelters featuring their services; animal protection; farms that raise meat in a healthy and sustainable manner.
Bring you pet for a blessing, and become a blessing to animals in turn!
