Description:
Please join St. John's Episcopal Church for a special Blessing of the Animals to celebrate the Feast of Saint Francis.  The Episcopal Church remembers and remains inspired by St. Francis of Assisi for an approach to life and faith that found deep joy in simplicity, peace, and nature.  A Novice of the Third Order Society of Saint Francis will lead the service in prayers, blessings, and songs starting at 6 p.m..  This family friendly event welcomes animals and their human companions of all ages. To learn more about St. Francis, please visit https://tssf.org/about-the-third-order/franciscan-spirituality-and-bibliography/. Please be sure pets are on leashes (6' or less) or in appropriate containers, except stuffed animals or photographs, and be prepared to clean up after your animal as needed.
