Blessing of the Animals
Wednesday, October 4 at 5:45 p.m. in the Cathedral Courtyard
We bless pets on St. Francis’ feast day, October 4, because of his love for animals
as expressed in his Canticle of Creatures. St. Francis is the patron saint of
animals and the environment.
All friends are welcome. They may have 4 legs, 2 legs, 8 legs or more. They may fly, slither, or swim. Bring them all to be blessed and bless one another.
In Sunday School this week we will walk our very own labyrinth and talk about where we find God and where the saints of Christ Church find God. Middle and high school students are invited to FUN CLUB after worship for some talk on prayer with Miss Lindsey, as well as lots of yummy treats in our re-stocked cupboard and fridge.
The nursery is open from 9:45 a.m. to 11:45 a.m.
