In celebration of St. Francis of Assisi and his love for all creatures, St. Bart's will celebrate Blessing of the Animals worship services Saturday, October 6 at 5 p.m. and Sunday, October 7 at 10:15 a.m. Bring your beloved pets (cats, dogs, birds, reptiles, fish, etc.-all are welcome) and join in this joyous worship and blessing. Remember that animals must be properly restrained at all times (cage, leash, etc.). You are welcome to bring a photo of your pet also. St. Bart's Youth CREW will be making and handing out homemade dog treats to all four-legged friends. The Sunday 8 a.m. service is animal-free.
Remembering Our Beloved Pets
If you have lost a pet, we invite you to bring a picture or other memento to place on the altar as we give thanks for the blessing that God's creatures have been in our lives.
