Blessing of the Animals

Save the date! All creatures great and small (and their human caretakes) are invited to the Blessing of the Animals on October 1st at 9 and 11 am.

The Blessing of the Animals is a beautiful way to bring all the different aspects of our lives to God, including our relationships with our pets and the working animals who mean so much to us.

Everyone is welcome to this one-of-a-kind event! Add it to your calendars now so you and your furry/feathered/scaled friend don’t miss out!
