For the blessing of the animals:

We will observe that service at 5:00 PM on October 2nd with our animal friends joining us in the field in front of the church where the cross is stationed. The service will be shorter and involve a reading from the Bible, a reading of prayers, and a blessing of the animals (house pets, barnyard animals, birds, reptiles, and stuffies.) This is a great opportunity to invite a friend, quadrupedal, bipedal, winged, or finned.
