St. Charles Episcopal Church to host animal blessing Oct. 1
To celebrate the upcoming Feast of St. Francis, the Rev. Stacy Walker will be blessing of animals, large and small, at a special outdoor service at 4 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 1, at St. Charles Episcopal Church, 994 N. Fifth Ave. (Route 25) in St. Charles.
As pets are part of families, this is an opportunity to thank God for their presence in your life.
Bring your pet (on a leash or in a carrier, please) and Rev. Stacy will bless its furry, scaled, feathered, or leathery head. Horses and other livestock are also welcome.
Please come and help celebrate the gift of all creatures great and small. The event will take place rain or shine.
