Blessing of the Animals service
October 3 @ 10:15 am - 11:30 am
Grace’s annual St. Francis Day service, aka our “blessing of the animals” service, has attracted every manner of God’s creatures over the years. Horses, dogs, cats, hamsters, bearded dragons, rabbits, stuffed animals – you name it, if it’s well-behaved enough to be in the churchyard with all God’s critters it’s welcome. There will be eucharist, music and all the usual worship features, plus your pets. Our EYC has prepared homemade dog biscuits for this event. Please BYOC (that’s bring your own chair) as we’ll meet outdoors near – what else – the St. Francis garden behind the historic church. Nursery care for those children 4 and younger will be available on the lower level of the Parish Hall, starting at 8:45 a.m. with pickup by the conclusion of the service (about 11:15 a.m.) All are welcome.
