Blessing of the Animals

October 6 @ 8:00 am - 1:00 pm

On Sunday, October 6, St. Francis will be celebrating the feast day of our patron saint, St. Francis of Assisi.

St. Francis saw in all creation–animals, plants, stars, people—the beautiful evidence of God’s handiwork. We are so honored to share in the name of this beloved saint, and we all continually strive to be worthy of his name. On this day people are invited to bring their animals to church for a personal blessing during the 8:00 am or 10:30 am service. It is both a fun, and yet very moving experience to have your little dog, cat, turtle or parakeet blessed and honored.

The open plate that day goes to the Clackamas Animal Shelter.

As part of the reception, there will be a bouncy house on the front lawn for children to play in all morning.
