Sunday October 4 is the Feast Day of St. Francis. The Rev. Anita Milne (Plainsboro Presbyterian Church) and I were wondering the other day if we should offer people with pets to a Blessing of the Animals. We invite people to bring pets in proper cages or on leashes, or a picture of your pet, for a brief service of prayer and to receive a blessing.
A Blessing of the Animals testifies to God’s love, care and concern for all creation. October 4 is a traditional day for such a celebration as it is the Feast Day of St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals and ecology. While Presbyterians don’t maintain the practice of honoring patron saints, on the Feast Day of St. Francis we can offer gratitude and thanks to God for the gift of animals and our pets, and celebrate and bless the beloved relationship between humanity and creatures in our care (and who care for us).
Who: Plainsboro and Dutch Neck Presbyterian churches

Whom: Bring your best friend, how many legs (s)he might have! (picture of your pet is good too).
