Blessing of the Animals
October 5, 2019 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm
Mark your calendars – Saint Mark’s Cathedral, Seattle will be observing the Feast Day of Saint Francis of Assisi in a new way this year. Rather than an add-on to the Sunday service, a Saturday afternoon liturgy will be focused on the life of the visionary saints Francis and Clare; God’s gift of the earth, our island home; and the beloved animals who share that home with us. The service will be held outdoors (weather permitting), and will feature musical offerings by acclaimed Seattle musician James Falzone. All creatures great and small are welcome to receive a blessing. (You are welcome to bring a photograph of an animal for whom the liturgy would not be a blessed experience.)
