St. Francis of Assisi was born in the 12th century and is known as the patron saint of the animals. In the Roman Catholic Church. October 4th is noted as the day of the Feast of Saint Francis and the traditional day in which we bless our animals. To honor and bless our animals, the Walnut Creek United Methodist Church will be having a drive-by blessing of the animals on Saturday, October 17th, 10:00 a.m. to noon.
On that day, we will ask participants to drive up to our blessing station at which time Pastor Colin will give a blessing for your beloved pet. We look forward to seeing all our furry friends and their people on October 17th!
