All are welcome to join Deacon Ed Robinson on October 6 at the flag pole in front of St John’s Community Center for our first Blessing of the Animals.
As prayers are offered, the pets will be gently sprinkled with holy water. Please be sure your pets are properly secured.
Saint Francis of Assisi was known for his love of all of God’s creatures. The Blessing of the Animals remembers Francis’ love by invoking God’s blessing on the animals and thanking God for letting us share the earth. The blessing also recognizes the important place that pets hold in people’s hearts.
