Blessing of the Animals
Jubilee Garden on Saturday, October 7 at 9:30 am

 

We will gather again near the annual observance of the Feast Day of Francis of Assisi, to celebrate our animal companions and all of creation. Attendance is not limited to church members, and all creatures great and small are welcome to attend with their human friends. Domestic animals who come need to be either on a leash or in a carrier; those unable to attend may be represented with photographs or other images.

The worship service includes prayers and songs, with blessings by Pastor Dave Denoon. In case of rain, we will gather in Memorial Hall, just behind the Jubilee Garden.

The Alliance for Interracial Dignity is now meeting monthly on the second Thursday of each month at 7 p.m.  The Alliance for Interracial Dignity is a group of leaders in the Webster Groves area with the goal of building a strong community by learning from our collective past and challenging the racial status quo.

Each meeting will include time to get to know one another, a learning opportunity related to social justice including time to discuss with friends, and lastly time for each of our focused committees to work toward positive action.
