Blessing of the Animals
Sunday, October 2 | 2 p.m.
FPC Welcome Center
All who love animals are invited to bring their beloved pets to the church for "A Blessing of the Animals". Animals are like family, and it will be wonderful to bless them and celebrate them.
Sunday, October 2 at 2 p.m., bring your animals to the Welcome Center for a blessing and also lemonade, cookies and pet treats. There will be an individual pet blessing as you walk in, as well as a group animal blessing at 2:15 p.m. with all present pets. (Please feel free to bring pictures of your animals, if it would be too difficult to transport them.)
St. Francis of Assisi was born in the 12th century and is remembered for his love for animals and nature. Our Catholic brothers and sisters have made him the patron saint of animals and the environment. Often in both Protestant and Catholic churches, a Blessing of the Animals is done on St. Francis Feast Day which is celebrated the first week of October.
