St. Francis animal blessing service Sunday, all invited

Oct 06, 2017

In celebration of St. Francis Day, First Lutheran Church is inviting the community to a Blessing of the Animals service at 10:30 a.m. Sunday. The Rev. Greg Friedrich will begin the blessing to celebrate the relationship between people and their pets. Participants are invited to bring pets, stuffed animals, or a picture of a pet to the area west of the church between the church and the parsonage. All animals must be on a leash. Do not bring aggressive animals. Farm animals are welcome.

St. Francis of Assisi is the patron saint of animals and environment.
