Blessing of the Animals

We invite you to come and celebrate the Feast Day of St. Francis with us on Saturday, October 4 at 10 am with a Blessing of the Animals.  The Catholic Tradition respects animals as God’s creatures, worthy of our care.  St. Francis wrote a Canticle of the Creatures, an ode to God’s living things: “All praise to you, Oh Lord, for all these brother and sister creatures.”  Let us have a procession of animals, everything from dogs, cats, and hamsters.  See you in the Gathering Circle in front of the church!
