Blessing the Animals
On Saturday, October 8, Christ Church Episcopal celebrates the feast day of St. Francis of Assisi with its annual Blessing of the Animals. The blessing, which is led by Father John Perry, takes place at 11 a.m. in the circle drive beside the church at 431 Union Street. Those bringing their pets to be blessed are asked to have them on a leash or in a crate. Refreshments will be provided for both pets and their people.
