Our pets bless our lives with their curiosity, acceptance, and loyalty, and now we have a chance to bless them too! Join us for a fun service celebrating our animal companions in the spirit of St. Francis. We will begin at 5:00 with a brief worship service, and then provide individual blessings of animals between 5:15 and 6:00. Drop by anytime with your pet (leashed or caged, please) to receive a blessing, take photos with props, and bring home some treats put together by our youth! In case of rain, we will be inside Carpenter Hall.
