Blessing of the Animals 9:00am, Saturday Oct. 7
Come celebrate the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi! All are invited to this short outdoor service with music and prayer, followed by coffee, juice and treats. For the safety of all, please restrain all animals on leashes or in their carriers/containers. If you can’t bring your pet, you are invited to bring a picture instead to be honored as part of God’s creative work in the world.
St. Francis of Assisi is best perhaps known as the patron saint of nature and the environment, with many legends that sprang up after his death dealing with his love for animals. Francis believed that the world was created good and beautiful by God but claimed that it is the duty of humanity to both protect and enjoy nature as stewards of God’s creation. In the event of inclement weather we will meet inside.
Prayer for those suffering from natural disasters

EPISCOPAL RELIEF & DEVELOPMENT HURRICANE HARVEY RESPONSE FUND
In 2016, Episcopal Relief & Development spent 84% on programs versus 9% on fundraising and 7% on administration. Because ERD receives support from the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society in addition to income from investments, at least 90% of every donor dollar goes directly to programs.
In the beginning when God created the heavens and the earth…
“..Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. And God saw that the light was good; and God separated the light from the darkness. God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, the first day.” (Gen.1:3-5)
