St. Charles Episcopal Church will hold its annual Blessing of the Animals on Sunday, Oct. 2.

Guests are welcome to join in a short drive-in service at 4 p.m. in the back parking lot, after which each animal can receive its own blessing.

 

Animals more comfortable staying in the car may do so, and pets who prefer not to travel can have their photo blessed.

The event will be held rain or shine.

The church has returned to its program year schedule with the Holy Eucharist at 8:30 a.m. and livestreamed choir Eucharist at 10:45 a.m. Sundays. Sunday school for all ages will meet between services from 9:45 to 10:30 a.m. They will be using a multigeneration series titled "The Path," a Forward Movement publication.

The church is a welcoming community to families and individuals from all walks of life.

St. Charles Episcopal Church is located at 994 N. Fifth Ave. (Route 25) in St. Charles. To contact the office, call (630) 584-2596 from Monday to Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
