All Pet Owners Invited to Blessing of the Animals

Christians have long honored St. Francis of Assisi by blessing animals on his feast day: the first Sunday in October in the liturgical calendar. To continue that tradition, Fr. Olin Sletto, vicar of the Episcopal Church of the Holy Nativity, invites pet owners to take their animals – large or small – to a Blessing of the Animals at Jacksonport’s Lakeside Park on Oct. 1, 10 am – 12 pm. He will repeat the blessing at the Church of Christ the King, at the corner of Michigan Street and 5th Avenue in Sturgeon Bay, on Oct. 5, 10 am – 12 pm.
