Blessing of the Animals at St. Marks


The Feast of St. Francis of Assisi will be celebrated with a special Blessing of the Animals at St. Mark's Episcopal Church on Saturday, October 6 at 2 p.m.  Everyone is invited to bring their pet(s), their stuffed animal(s), or photos of their animals to the event which will take place outside in the St. Francis Memorial Garden (located on Ridge Avenue between Lake and Grove).

If you one of your beloved pets has died in the past year, please forward their name to Pastor Debra at [email protected] and they will be included in a special prayer that day.  If you are not available to attend on Saturday, both St. Matthew's and St. Luke's Episcopal Churches will hold pet blessings on Sunday, September 7.

For more information, contact the church office at 847-864-4806.
