BLESSING of the ANIMALS 2021
Every year, Holy Trinity gives thanks for the blessing of our pets and animal friends, as a way to commemorate the life of St. Francis of Assisi, and to celebrate the unconditional love of our pets.
Are you a pet or animal lover? Do you have your own furry or feathered friends at home, or know others with animal companions? Cat and dog, pig and bird, lizard and spider, hamster and fish (in water, please!) - All are welcome to join us tentatively on Sunday, October 3rd at 9:30am (COVID related restrictions and protocols will determine whether this service occurs) for a special Blessing of the Animals service.
This special event commemorates the feast of St. Francis of Assisi, where animals have been blessed since the middle ages. No saint is more closely associated with animals than St. Francis of Assisi. He rejoiced in the value and beauty animals bring to creation.
All pets are welcome to bring their humans, of course! We hope to see you and your furry, feathered, fuzzy, and finny companions October 4th!
