The following announcement was provided by the Church of the Good Shepherd:

The Church of the Good Shepherd invites all animal lovers to join us for the 2021 Blessing of the Animals. 

All animals and their people — including pets, stuffed animals, and photos of pets (the dearly departed or who can’t be present) — are welcome to join us for a special blessing by the Reverend Andrew Goldhor.

This annual ritual observing the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi will be held twice this year: outside the church on Sunday, October 3 at 12 noon (after the 10 a.m. worship service), and indoors on Thursday, October 7 at 7 p.m. (prior to the Hidden Brook contemplative prayer service). At the indoor blessing people will be masked and observe social distancing.
