All creatures of our God and King, lift up your voices, let us sing, alleluia!
Most high, omnipotent, good Lord,
grant your people grace to renounce gladly
the vanities of this world;
that, following the way of blessed Francis,
we may for love of you
delight in your whole creation
with perfectness of joy;
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
St. Francis Evensong & Pet Blessing
Sunday, October 6
On this Sunday after St. Francis Day, we gather for the Blessing of the Animals. All furry, feathery, and scaly friends, and their caregivers, are invited to join us for the Sunday Evensong as we honor all of God’s creatures, giving thanks for the goodness of the creation. Caregivers are asked to take the appropriate precautions to ensure a safe event for everyone. A reception follows the service on the Lanai.
Peanut Butter & Towels Collection
We are collecting jars of peanut butter and towels for the Hawaiian Humane Society. Bring your donations to the Pet Blessing, or prior to the event. A box for your donations has been placed in the Parish Hall.
Baking of Pet Treats
Join us in the kitchen on Saturday, October 5, at 10:00 am for the baking of homemade pet treats.
