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.
