Generally known as a lover of birds, animals, and creation in general – statues of St Francis frequently appear in gardens – Francis of Assisi was also a strong champion of the poor and outcast of his time and society. The son of a wealthy Italian cloth merchant, Francis underwent a deep spiritual transformation and lived a humble, peaceful life, rebuilding the ruins of church buildings as places of worship and refuge. The feast of St. Francis is October 4. In honor of St. Francis and in celebration of Creation you are invited to bring your four legged, two legged, no legged, feathered, finned or otherwise friends to church for our Blessing of the Animals Service.
