Saint Francis of Assisi
Blessing of the Animals Service
This much-loved service is held yearly on the Sunday closest to St. Francis of Assisi Day on the lawn outside St. Stephen's Parish Hall. Parishioners as well as community members are invited to bring their beloved pets - whether they are live and breathing or stuffed animals - to the service for a blessing from the rector.
Our own Deb Werts hosts and prepares these themed dinners from Meatloaf in March to Sauerkraut in October. Our own John "Chef Bart" Bartholomeo hosts and prepares "Italian Night Dinners" as well.
