Blessing of the Animals

Francis of Assisi was born into the family of a wealthy merchant and gave up his inheritance to serve the poor. Forming the Order of Friars Minor, now called Franciscans, he promoted taking on poverty and the task of preaching “using words if necessary” with his followers. Francis had a spirit of gratitude for all of God’s creation and thus we will commemorate him by offering a Blessing of Animals on the front lawn of the church from 6:00 – 6:45 PM on Wednesday, October 4. Bring your family pets or a photograph of them!
