BLESSING OF THE ANIMALS
Sunday, October 2
4-5 p.m. in the SMAA West Parking / SMES Porte-Cochere
From kittens to chickens, guppies to puppies, our clergy will be BLESSING all pets great and small. This free event celebrating the Feast of St. Francis is open to the entire community, so come and enjoy this wonderful annual Saint Michael and All Angels tradition. A short liturgy will be led by the clergy followed by individual pet blessings. Each pet will receive a lovely St. Francis medallion for their pet collar. Refreshments for pets and their humans will be served.
This year, we are partnering with VNA’s Meals-on-Wheels Pet Program for a new animal outreach project. So, bring your pets to be blessed and help us to bless the pets of others!
