To recognize the life and work of St. Francis of Assisi, Edmonds Lutheran Church will hold a Blessing of Pets Service Sunday, Oct. 5 at 10:30 a.m. All are welcome to attend.
St. Francis was revered as the patron saint of animals, and the service will include music and biblical readings. There will be special music (dogs often join in), a time for pets to come forward to be blessed and anointed, and a coffee hour following the service with cookies for people and pets. Everyone is welcome to bring their pets.
