Our pets bless us every single day of the year in so many ways. One day a year we have a chance to officially bless our furry (or scaly or feathered) friends at church as we celebrate the life and witness of St. Francis of Assisi (12-13th c.) This celebration includes a blessing of the animals. On Saturday, at 10:00 am under our Portico, we will offer a blessing to your animal friends and companions. Please ensure your pet is on a leash or caged. This year we are asking you to bring a donation of dog or cat food (wet or dry) to be donated to the Pieloch Pet Adoption Center (Capital Humane Society).
Join us as we return the blessing to our sweet companions in life.
At First Lutheran, we are a community of disciples of Jesus Christ working for the transformation of the world. Throughout our history, we have remained committed to drawing on our Lutheran (ELCA) tradition of using meaningful worship, content-rich learning and warm hospitality to care well for our congregation, the surrounding community and the world.
