Blessing of the Animals service on Sunday, Oct. 1 at 4 p.m. at Resurrection Lutheran Church

Blessing of the Animals

Resurrection celebrates all God’s creatures with an outdoor Blessing of the Animals on Sunday, Oct. 1 at 4 p.m. This is several days before the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, a Christian saint remembered for his love of nature. Bring your animal companions (children’s stuffed friends are welcome, too) to Resurrection’s parking lot for a short, 30-minute service and blessing. Live animals should be in the control of an adult at all times.
