St Francis Day Blessing of the Animals

St Francis Day Blessing of the Animals OctoberOct 08 2023 02:00pm - 04:00pm America/New_York

Please join us in the Memorial Garden at Christ Church, 8951 Courthouse Rd, Spotsy for our Blessing of the Animals service October 9th at 2:00.Have you ever wondered why statues of St. Francis grace many gardens? It’s because of his understanding of God’s grace to and through nature and animals. He is known as the patron saint of animals. His feast day is often observed with a service of the Blessing of the Animals.

All pets (and humans) are welcome: dogs, cats, birds, turtles…even stuffed and plush pets! A photo of a pet you’d rather not bring is also an option.  You can come even if you don’t have a pet to be blessed. It will be fun to see all of the critters gathered, and we will have treats for people and pets.

We extend a special invitation to our community neighbors.  We hope you will join us with your pets for this special celebration.
