‘Blessing of the Animals’ is Saturday; animal rescue ministry is Sunday

Saturday: Join us Oct. 1 at 10:30 a.m. for our annual “Blessing of the Animals.”
The service is in remembrance of St. Francis of Assisi’s love for all creatures. Francis, whose feast day is Oct. 4, loved the larks flying about his hilltop town. He and his early brothers, staying in a small hovel, allowed themselves to be displaced by a donkey.
Francis wrote a Canticle of the Creatures, an ode to God’s living things. “All praise to you, Oh Lord, for all these brother and sister creatures.”
Sunday: Martha Myers speaks to our adult class about her family’s ministry of rescuing abused and abandoned animals.
