Blessing of Animals for St. Francis Sunday
Thu, September 26, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am
St. Francis Day is October 4, but we celebrate the faith and witness of Francis on the Sunday following, which this year is October 6. We remember St. Francis who followed Jesus especially by showing love to the poor, the sick, the friendless, and the weakest. Francis did this with joy and thanksgiving, connecting deeply with all of creation. We bless animals at each of our worship services 8am (Said Eucharist: No music, about an hour long), 11am (Choral Eucharist: choir, organ, & ceremony) and 6pm (Communion in the Round, casual with contemporary music).
