Blessing of Pets
United in Faith will host a Pet Blessing Service on Saturday, October 3rd at 3pm. Join us outdoors (back parking lot). Wear a mask, and have your pet on a leash or in a cage. This pet blessing is scheduled near St. Francis of Assisi's commemoration day: Born into the family of a wealthy merchant, Francis gave up his inheritance to serve poor people. He formed the Order of Friars Minor (called Franciscans), who took on poverty and the task of preaching through acts of service, "using words if necessary." Francis had a spirit of gratitude for all of God's creation, especially animals.
