This Sunday, October 2, is the Sunday we celebrate the Feast of St. Francis and hold our annual blessing of the animals.
Unlike many churches that separate the pet blessing from their worship, we do the two together — during the 10:30 AM Holy Eucharist!
Pets do need to be leashed or caged, but otherwise, bring them along! We’re always surprised at how well they conduct themselves, even in an unfamiliar place with other animals and people they don’t know.
If you’re worried about what you will do with your pet when you are receiving Communion, worry no more. Just look for someone wearing one of these badges and let him (or her) take care of your pet for those moments.
And, why not download your bulletin now!
