Blessing of the Animals (All Pets Welcome)
Sunday, October 4th at 11:30 AM on St. Mary’s Front Lawn
Sunday, October 4th at 11:30 AM on St. Mary’s Front Lawn Come celebrate the gift that animals are to our lives and bring your favorite pet for a very special blessing at this celebration of the Feast of St. Francis. All sizes, shapes and types of God’s creatures are welcome and may even make a joyful noise unto the Lord! Feel free to invite a friend and their pet to join us.
In the spirit of stewardship and the parable of the Loaves and Fishes, on October 4, we will also collect contributions of pet food (dog and cat food only, please) for distribution to needy families through the Wellesley Food Bank (and perhaps others). Please put your donations in the baskets by the baptismal font.
