Blessing of the animals and fall festival

Bring a furry friend to St. James on Saturday, Oct. 5, at 3 p.m. for our annual Blessing of the Animals in honor of the Feast of the beloved patron saint of animals, St. Francis.

Weather permitting, we will gather on the east lawn for an informal service celebrating our relationships with our four-legged best friends and culminating in each critter receiving a blessing. Afterward, we will have a time of fellowship, a fall festival on the lawn including hot apple cider, cookies and swag bags for the pets. All are welcome, regardless of species.
