St. Francis Fall Fest
On Sunday, October 6th, we will continue our tradition of holding the 10:00 AM service under the tent for the Blessing of the Animals. There between the Liturgy of the Word and the Celebration of the Eucharist, we will bless the animals, all of them. So bring your toads, your parakeets, your cats, your dogs, your horses, and your stuffies (yes, stuffed animals are welcome too). We look forward to see you among the paws, fur, howling, and meowing.
