Blessing of the Animals Sunday!
Come one, come all, to the Blessing of the Animals and Parade of Exotic Animals at Christ Church this Sunday, October 7th! This annual celebration honors the feast day of St. Francis (Oct. 4th). It reminds us of the tremendous gift we have been given in creation, and the blessings that many of us receive from our pets and the other animals we encounter in our lives.
Bring your pets (on a leash or in a cage) to the 10:30 service this week and they will receive a blessing from our priests. We will also have some exotic animals with us during the service and afterwards to get to know. Several of our past visitors are pictured in this post!
This Sunday we will end atrium at 10:15 am so that the children can sit with their families for the entire 10:30 service. We know that no one wants to miss a bark or a hiss!! Parents of children in the Good Shepherd Atrium- please meet outside the atrium at 10:15 am and wait there to pick up your little ones. Older children will meet their parents in Church. See you Sunday!
