Blessing of the Animals

st-francis-dayEach year on the first Sunday of October we, at St. Andrew’s, Celebrate St. Francis Day with a Blessing of the Animals. Small animals of any variety are welcome in the service that day and blessings are given at both the 8AM and 10AM service. We encourage any remembrance of animals to be brought if you choose not to bring the actual animal to the service. It is a joyous time and it is surprising how well behaved our 4 legged family members are during that time.
