On Sunday, October 9 at 3 p.m., the community is invited to bring household pets to be blessed by the Rev. Lucy Ann Dure of the Episcopal Church of the Holy Spirit. “Bring any cherished creature of your choice–properly restrained–for a special blessing as we give thanks for the love of God shown to us by animals, and remember our special duty to care for all God’s creatures,” said the Rev. Dure. This celebration coincides with the celebration of the Feast of St. Francis. Please join us – and bring your camera!
