The tradition of blessing the animals at St. George's is alive and well! You are invited to bring your animal companion for a brief outdoor service of celebration and blessing on Saturday, October 2, at 1:00 pm.
Celebrate St. Francis Sunday, October 3
On Sunday, October 3 the worship service is centered on St. Francis, whose feast day is October 4. This year we go beyond the blessing of the animals (that service is Saturday Oct. 2; see announcement above) and focus in on St. Francis not just as a lover of creation, but as a radical follower of Jesus. Join us October 3rd at 8 and 10 am for this special service with guest preacher John Rebstock, himself a Third Order Franciscan.
