Blessing of the Animals

The Blessing Of Animals This Sunday, October 13  as we celebrate the feast of St. Francis at the 9:30 and 11:10 am services. Please bring your pets with you: all sizes, breeds, colors, shapes are welcome to attend then service. (Yes, we include all goldfish, birds, frogs, cats and dogs in our welcome yes, even stuffed animals!)  Gather outside Sherrill Hall at 9:25 am or 11:05 am..  We will process in with the opening hymn, be seated in the church, and then come forward to  have blessings for each creature/owner at the altar . If your pet has reasonably good manners, it can stay for church!  If it is having a “barky” day or needs car-time during worship, feel free to usher it to a vehicle with open windows.
