EUREKA - Eureka Christian Church will host a ‘Blessing of the Animals’ service on Saturday, October 5. Formerly a traditional Catholic ceremony, the ‘Blessing of the Animals’ service is held near the day set aside to honor St. Francis of Assisi, who is remembered for his love of animals.
Everyone is invited to bring an animal (one per person) on a leash or in an animal carrier, or a picture of one, to be blessed in a ceremony conducted by Rev. Jenny Churchman.
The ceremony will take place in the courtyard on the west side of the church off Cruger Street on Saturday, Oct. 5 at 8:30 AM.
For more information, call the church office at 467-2369.
