Blessing of the animals
In remembrance of Saint Francis of Assisi’s love for all creatures, we invite all animals to be blessed at 3:30 pm. The love we give to a pet, and receive from a pet, can draw us more deeply into the larger circle of life, into the wonder of our common relationship to our Creator. If you don’t have a live pet at home, you are welcome to bring a favorite stuffed/toy animal to be blessed instead.
The intention will be to hold the service outside, weather permitting. We ask that all pets must be either kept on a leash or remain in carrying container.
