LUMC to bless animals Sunday
Lower United Methodist Church at Hartfield will hold a Blessing of the Animals Service on Sunday, October 4, at 3 p.m.
October 4 is a day to remember the life and contributions of St. Francis of Assisi, who is associated with caring for the poor and for all of God’s creatures.
All pets are welcome, but please have them leashed or caged to ensure the safety of all attendees. Dr. Janine Howard, with the assistance of other local pastors, will conduct the service, and a free will offering will be donated to local animal shelters.
