St. Francis Day Pet Blessing and Eucharist
Time & Location
About the Event
All people, creatures, and critters are invited to a celebration in thanksgiving of our pets and animals this St. Francis Sunday! We will gather outdoors on the front lawn (or in the parish hall if it rains) for our monthly Family Eucharist with a blessing for our pets and animal companions.
We will be doing a special collection of items for the Pope Memorial SPCA. Please consider picking out an item from https://www.popememorialspca.org/wish-list to bring to the service.
Children are welcome. This is a fun way to introduce your child to church!
All species are welcome, even stuffed animals. Please make sure your pet will be safe, contained and comfortable when you visit. Use a leash, carrier or crate as appropriate.
If you can’t transport your pet or are grieving the loss of a special pet, consider bringing a picture or other token.
All God’s creatures love to sing–a little extra noise on St. Francis Day is okay with us!
