In the tradition of celebrating St. Francis of Assisi, St. Paul’s will have a Blessing of Animals in the Great Hall following the 10:15 AM liturgy on Sunday, October 6th. Stuffed animals are also welcome. If you have sacred objects that have been part of your journey (crosses, icons, sacred tokens) and you would like them to be blessed, it is perfectly appropriate to include them. After the blessing, we’ll celebrate with a picnic meal. St. Paul’s will provide the hot dogs, brats, burgers and drinks. Please feel free to bring a salad or dessert. We’ll eat in the Great Hall and grill outside weather permitting. Guests are welcome.
