Blessing of the Animals with special guest

On Saturday, October 5, 2013, at 10 am, St. Mark’s Episcopal Church will celebrate an Interfaith Blessing of the Animals in the Courtyard of the church’s property.  (If it rains, come to the Courtyard and follow the signs for the weather plan location in our Concourse.)
This event honors the furried, feathered, and even finned members of the created order.  Animals of different varieties are welcome.  To keep our animal (and human) friends safe, please have dogs on leashes, cats in carriers, hamsters-bunnies-birds-etc. in their cages, horses haltered or bridled, turtles in their bowls.  This year we will also welcome special guest singer-songwriter Penny Pierce and her dog Chuckles.  Penny will perform her song Forever Home which can be viewed on YouTube at
