Blessing Of The Animals – 1:00 PM Sunday, October 2nd, 2016
St. Stephen’s will hold our annual Blessing of the Animals at 1:00 PM on the Parish lawn (or inside if it rains). As always, we will have a brief ceremony to celebrate the joy our pets bring us and then bless each animal individually. “Hambone Kelly” will provide music and there will be refreshments for animals and for people. Each pet will receive a “certificate of blessing” to commemorate the event.
For the safety of the pets, we ask that they come in appropriate carriers and containers or on a secure lead.
We sincerely hope that you and your animal friends will be able to attend.
