St. Paul Lutheran Church and School will host its first annual Blessing of the Animals on Sunday, Nov. 10, at 3 p.m. The event welcomes all furry, feathered, finned, and scaled members of the family.
Pastor Rob Maulella will preside over the prayers and blessings. The event is held in honor of the Feast of St. Francis, the patron saint of animals.
The service will take place at the downstairs entryway and soccer field area. Animals must bring their human with them and must be safely secured in a cage, carrier or on a leash.
