The Episcopal Church of the Redeemer invites parishioners, family, friends, and neighbors to join us for a Blessing of the Animals on the Eve of the Feast of Francis of Assisi, patron saint of animals and ecology.
The liturgy, which lasts for about 20 minutes, will take place on the church labyrinth.
Creatures of all kinds--furred, feathered, scaled, stuffed--are welcome!
Event begins at 5:30PM
Presented by: The Episcopal Church of the Redeemer
