Blessing of the Animals October 9

All are welcome to gather for the annual Blessing of the Animals service which will be held 9 a.m. Sunday, October 9 in the "barking lot."

The service will be followed by a light "yappy hour" between 10-10:30.

The service will be held "rain of shine" unless actively storming.

A goat may also make an appearance; now you wouldn't want to be bested by a goat, would you?

All creatures great and small  . . .
