Blessing of the Animals

St. Francis Day is on October 4, and we’re celebrating it on Sunday, October 3. All are invited to attend our annual Blessing of the Animals at 12:00 noon in the courtyard. The clergy will offer blessings and treats for each pet, and you can have your photo snapped with St. Francis (or a reasonable facsimile thereof) or in front of the red doors. It’s a chance to chat and catch up with your friends and fellow parishioners and introduce them to your beloved pet.

Also, whether or not you can bring your four-legged friend to church that day, please send a photo of him/her, with or without you in it, to the office. We’ll compile them and make a slideshow for our YouTube channel, STMAA Connection. You can watch last year’s slideshow there under Playlists/Slideshows.
