Blessing of the Animals and Saint Francis Celebration! Saturday, October 6!
Unlike previous years, we’ll be holding our Saint Francis festivities on a Saturday to give more time to celebrate Francis, to deepen our commitment to follow his pattern of loving engagement with neighbor and creation, and to renew our focus on worshiping the Loving God of all creation on the next day.
Beginning with a service for the Blessing of the Animals, we’ll gather for food and fellowship, learn more about pet adoption, participate in a pet food drive to benefit the Pawsitive Friends Pet Food Bank, and engage together in a forum on Saint Francis and Franciscan spirituality! Mark your calendars! Bring your favorite animal friends! And bring some pet food for the food drive to go to the favorite animal friends of folks in need!
Join us as we celebrate the feast of Saint Francis of Assisi by sharing in his love for all of God’s creation, and especially for animals and all those in need!
