St. Francis is known for many things, but especially for preaching the Gospel to all of creation, even the animals, and for blessing the creatures that God created and called good. On Sunday, October 4th, in honor of St. Francis and in recognition of the value and love pets bring to our lives, we will take an hour to give thanks for those relationships, pray for our pets, and bless them.
During the two services on this Sunday, we will also have a Blessing of the Cuddlies during the announcements. We will have the kids bring their favorite stuffed animal or special toy with them and will give thanks to God for the happiness such things bring our children.
To let us know that you’re coming to the event, please note your attendance on the Facebook Event page.
