St. Luke's Annual Blessing of the Animals

St. Luke's Annual Blessing of the Animals

posted Thursday, September 28, 2017

Liza invites you to the Annual Blessing of the Animals to be held in the church side lawn of St. Luke's Episcopal Church, 313 Main Street in Chester on Saturday, October 7, at 11 a.m. and again on Sunday, the 8th at 4 p.m.

The service celebrates the ministry of St. Francis of Assisi, a lover of animals. It is a day we honor the pets we love. The Rev. Heidi Edson will bless any and all animals no matter the denomination of the owner or pet.

Treats and the St. Francis medal will be given to all furry guests and cookies for the owners. In case of rain, the event will be held inside Willard Hall.
