Emmanuel Parish’s annual Blessing of the Animals will be held on Saturday, Sept. 29th at 3:00 pm on the outdoor labyrinth.
A brief service will be held to honor our kinship with the creatures of the earth remembering St. Francis of Assisi, who inspired peace and love for all creatures. Bring your pets (4 footed, no footed, beaked, winged, clawed or finned) to the labyrinth where each will receive an individual blessing.
All animals should come with a leash or cage for safety. If you can’t bring your pet, feel free to bring a picture to represent them. This year we will honor the life of April, our beloved Eastsound bovine who passed last week.
