Blessing of the Animals

October 3, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Dogs and all pets are invited to attend St. Peter’s Church with their humans to receive a blessing at the 10 a.m. service on Sunday, October 3. On this day, people all over the world celebrate the feast day of the Patron Saint of Animals, Saint Francis of Assisi. St. Francis is remembered for his love of all creatures great and small. St. Peter’s is an historic church with box seating instead of traditional pews. The boxes are a perfect, safe place for you and your furry friend to enjoy the service and receive a blessing. All are welcome!

*Masks are required indoors during the worship service as we keep one another safe at this time!
