Bring your pets: The Blessing of the Animals, Pooler, Oct. 3

Blessing of the animals Savannah Pooler 2015 St. Patrick’s Episcopal Church, The Blessing of the Animals 2015

The Feast of St. Francis
Saturday, Oct 3 2015 @ St. Patrick’s Episcopal Church
Noon-3PM, 1285 Pine Barren Road, Pooler

In partnership with The Humane Society for Greater Savannah

St. Francis of Assisi proclaimed God’s love for all creation, and even preached to the animals around him. In that spirit, we celebrate the joy that comes from our relationship with God’s creatures,

Bring your pets to St. Patrick’s Church any time between Noon and 3PM on Saturday October 3 to receive a blessing. Organizers ask that pets be restrained by leash or in cages, as even normally calm animals can react unexpectedly to unfamiliar surroundings.

If you can, please help support other pets by bringing some of the items the Humane Society has requested to help the animals in their care.
