AnimalsBlessing of the Animals

St. Francis of Assi is known best for his love of animals and all creation. The Feast of St. Francis is celebrated each year on Oct. 4. This celebration is an opportunity to thank God for the animals in our lives. The bond between humans and animals is remarkable and often is a reflection of the unconditional love of God. On Wednesday, October 1 at 6 pm, we will celebrate Rincon UMC’s first Blessing of the Animals at Cowart’s Retreat Center (the pond). Bring your furry loved ones (please all animals on leashes or in appropriate carriers. After the blessing we will share a meal together (hamburgers, hot dogs and the fixin’s). Please make your reservation through the church office. Dinner is $5 per person. Hope to see you and your animal companions there.
