On Saturday, September 28 Holy Trinity Episcopal Church, at Haddon and Fern Avenues in Collingswood, will celebrate the Feast of St. Francis with an outdoor service and the blessing of pets.   The Service will begin at 10:30 a.m. All pets are welcome for the service and blessing. For the safety of all (including your pet) please make sure that all pets are properly restrained. Children are also invited to bring any cherished, stuffed animals that might be in need of a blessing.   St. Francis of Assisi was born in Italy, in 1181, to a wealthy cloth-merchant. At the age of 25, Francis decided to give up his wealth and live a life of poverty in the service of the poor. He founded the Franciscan order in 1208. St. Francis has always been remembered most for his great love of the animals, whom he called his “brothers and sisters.”   Today, many of us understand and share those feelings of closeness with special animals in our lives. The Feast of St. Francis is an opportunity for us to ask for God’s blessing on the wonderful pets who so enrich our lives. Refreshments and “treats” for everyone will be served after the service, and an offering will be taken to benefit local animal shelters. The service and blessing of pets will be held in the church plaza, if the weather permits, in the Great Hall (downstairs in the church) if it doesn't. For more information, please call the church office at 856-858-0491.       (For clarifications or further information, please call Fr. Mark Chattin at 856-856-858.)
