Christ Church plans ‘Blessing of Animals’ service
On Sunday, October 7, at the 10:30 a.m. worship service, Christ Church Parish (Episcopal) will celebrate the Feast of Saint Francis of Assisi with a special “Service of Blessing of Animals.”
“Saint Francis came to see the full beauty of God’s creation in his close relationship with God’s creatures,” said The Rev. Paul Andersen. “He saw mirrored in their unconditional love the love God has for us, for all his creatures, and for all his creation. In this Service of Blessing of Animals we celebrate that love.”
The Service of Blessing of Animals will be followed by the usual Sunday Holy Eucharist. People and pets of all denominations are welcome.
For further information, please call the Parish Office at 758-2006. Christ Church Parish (Episcopal) is at Routes 638 and 33 in Christchurch, Middlesex County.
