Animal Blessing 12pm
October 7 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
St. Francis of Assisi, whose feast day is October 4, is beloved as the patron saint of animals. In honor of St. Francis, we are offering two opportunities for blessing of animals.
On Saturday, October 6, we will pray An Order of Service for Noonday in Centennial Chapel followed by refreshments and blessings.
On Sunday, October 7, blessings will also take place in Centennial Chapel during the regular noon Eucharist.
We ask that participating animals be non-aggressive and properly controlled (i.e., leashed, crated, and/or in their preferred environment, such as hamster cage or fish bowl).
If you prefer to worship with only human companionship, there will be no animal blessings at the 8:00 AM or 10:00 AM Eucharist on Sunday, October 7.
