In honor of St. Francis who loved all of God’s creatures, we will be having a “Blessing of the Pets” on Sunday, September 27  at 10:00 on the south side of the church. Please feel free to bring your pets to this short outdoor blessing. You should have plenty of time get your pets from home after the 8:30 service or to return your pets to your home prior to the 11:00 service. If your child has a beloved stuffed toy “pet,” they may also bring it to be blessed.

All ages children and youth will take part in the Pet Blessing during the Sunday school hour. If your child has a fear of animals, they may wait in the multi-purpose room. There will be teachers with them during the blessing time. Children in grades K-5 will go to the multipurpose room following the blessing for a large group activity. 2 & 3 year olds, Pre-K, Middle School, and High School groups will go to their classrooms following the blessing.

We hope to see you and all your “furry friends” there! 

In case of rain, please bring a photograph of your pet to share.
