Blessing of the Animals

This year on the church calendar, the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals and the environment, is on Sunday, October 4th. You are invited on this day, to bring
your family’s pet(s) to a “Blessing of the Animals”. We’ll meet on the church lawn (beside 272 Peel Street) at 4:00 pm for a short blessing, approximately 20 minutes. You are welcome to bring a lawn chair if you’d prefer to sit.

While this is an outdoor service, physical distancing will need to be maintained. We also need to discourage the mingling of pets, so please ensure your pet is on a leash. Kindly bring
along your poop ’n’ scoop baggies for any souvenirs they leave behind. (The property guys will appreciate it when cutting the grass!)

If the event needs to be cancelled due to inclement weather, Pastor Tanya will give an update at online worship on October 4th at 9:30 am.
