Blessing of the Animals – during the 9 a.m. service
All pets, big or small, are invited to the Trinity’s annual “Blessing of the Animals” service at 9 a.m. in celebration of our furry (and non-furry) friends! Trinity’s service is inspired by the Feast Day of St. Francis of Assisi, who is widely known and beloved as the patron saint of animals. Children of families who don’t have a pet can to bring a favorite stuffed animal to be blessed.
St. Francis Day Fair – 10 a.m.
Stop by the St. Francis Day Fair during the 10 a.m. Education Hour. Jungle Terry will be there with his many furry and scaly friends. Also on hand will be representatives from the Fieldstone Farm Therapeutic Riding Center and Ralph Pfingston, Herpetologist for the State of Ohio and expert on the endangered Hellbender salamanders.
