2018 Pet Blessing Service - 08/17/18

On Friday, August 17, the eve of the feast of Sts. Larus and Florus, our faithful gathered amidst threatening rain to bless the pets of our parish. This year, only dogs were brought - but they remained quiet and respectful throughout the service. Afterwards, we processed around the church while singing, "O Lord, Save Thy People..." At the conclusion of the service we were met by a gigantic rainbow across the easter sky - much like the one Noah and the animals experienced once the ark settled on solid ground.
