Community Blessing of Animals Saturday, Sept. 30

Community Blessing of Animals Saturday, Sept. 30

St. Peter’s invites the community to share a “Blessing of Animals,” on Saturday, September 30th at 10 a.m. on the grounds between St. Peter’s and the adjacent public playground. St Francis loved all of God’s creatures, and so do we. Around the traditional St. Francis’s fall feast day – many churches observe a similar  “blessing of animals,'” to honor St. Francis and God’s love of all creatures.  This simple service is a meaningful way to celebrate your own relationship with the pets and animals that give deep meaning to your life.  It is a particularly enjoyable event for children.  So bring your pets (or favorite stuffed animals) and join us a blessing at this brief outdoor service. All welcome! In the event of rain, the service will happen in St. Peter’s parish hall.

Coming September 24, Sunday Evening Celtic Worship

NOTE Revised date; Beginning September 24th,  at 5:30 pm, we will be introducing a  Sunday evening Celtic worship service at 5:30 pm. Our Celtic worship, drawn from the liturgical traditions of Iona and Northumbria, will combine meditative silence, simplicity of utterance, and faithful commitment of care for the earth. This way of prayer, of opening oneself to God’s love, God’s forgiveness, and God’s hope – to the fullness of God’s presence in our lives – is hundreds of years old but speaks with immediacy to the yearning of our hearts now.   We welcome  participation from all  seeking to deepen their spiritual journey and through shared prayer to break down barriers between different faith traditions and seekers.
