Annual Block Party -- Great Time Had by All!
St. Francis Day Blessing of the Animals!
Saturday, October 4, 10:30 a.m. on the Great Lawn outside Church
St. Francis of Assisi - from whom Pope Francis took his name - was a great lover of nature and animals. On his feast day Christians traditionally blessed the farm animals who worked the harvest (and before the slaughter!); today we bless all our animal friends for the joy they give us. Dogs, cats, horses, lizards and goldfish are welcome!

This series is a continuation of last spring's popular series exploring how Catholics read and understand the Bible. After an introduction to Catholic Bible study the first session, the next 5 sessions in this fall series will focus on the great stories contained in Genesis chapters 12-50: the stormy lives and loves of great Biblical characters Abraham, Sarah, Isaac and Rebekah, Hagar and Ishmael, Jacob and Rachel and Jacob's 12 sons, especially Joseph! Instructor is Diane Vella, M.A., Pastoral Associate.
