Gilfrod Methodist church hosts Blessing of the Animals

GILFORD — All animal lovers and pet owners are invited to the First United Methodist Church of Gilford on Saturday, October 5 at 10:30 a.m. for a celebration of the Blessing of the Animals.

Churches celebrates the Feast of St. Francis on October 4 of each year, and many local churches have chosen to honor and celebrate Francis' example and influence by conducting Blessing of the Animals events. Pastor Tom Getchell-Lacey will be conducting the service, that while it is not happening on the actual feast day of St. Francis, it will be offered the day after as a tribute to this beloved saint.

Please have your animals on leashes or in carriers for their safety. The outdoor chapel is behind the shed in back of the church.
