Our annual Blessing of the Animals service to celebrate St. Francis of Assisi patron saint of animals on his special day will be held on Sunday October 7th at 2:00 pm.  Bring your animals, large and small, to this lovely service in the Memorial Garden at Saint Peter’s (right behind the church).  We will also be collecting pet related items (cat food, dog food, litter, towels, etc.) to be donated to local animal shelters.
