The Blessing of the Animals celebrates the special connection and love that owners have for their pets. It also recognizes the caregiving that is given to animals by those who own and love them and is celebrated in remembrance of St. Francis of Assisi’s love for all creatures.
On Sunday, October 8th, St. James will host a special Holy Eucharist Service with a Blessing of the Animals. All are invited to bring their horses, chickens, dogs, cats and more, to church on Sunday, for a special blessing and welcome from Reverend Kit as part of our Creation Care Sunday celebration.
If your animal cannot attend, please bring a photo of your pet(s) for a blessing. Stuffed animals are welcome too!
We hope you and yours will be able to attend!
