The spirit of St. Francis will once again be celebrated at St. Peter’s on the first Sunday in October with a pet blessing directly after the 10:00 a.m. service. Small pets in carriers may attend the service with their families before the blessing. Pets such as larger dogs may arrive in time for the 11:00 a.m. blessing or remain with a family member outside in the shade during the service. If your pet is not fond of traveling, feel free to bring a photo for blessing. Children are welcome to bring a favorite stuffed animal. Please invite your neighbors and friends!
