St. Gabriel loves St. Francis and this year on Sunday October 3rd we have family and pet-friendly worship services wrapped around the love and care of animals and all creation. At 8:00 and 10:00 am we are offering online Zoom animal blessings, a video featuring the pets of St. Gabriel presented by Gabriel’s Friends, our animal ministry, young readers using a child-friendly version of the lectionary, and an unforgettable sermon with a costumed drama based on the miracle of St. Francis and the wolf.

Make sure you have your children join the service with you- in their treasure bags there is a St. Francis activity sheet with stickers they can work on as they watch and listen. If your family misses the live service, remember our services are available by the Monday after here on our website and our YouTube channel.

We will also offer an in-person pet blessing after the 10:00 am service from 11:15 am-12:00 pm. Load your darling animals into the car and drive up through the church’s upper circle parking lot. We will bless your pets while you stay masked and in the car. You don’t have to mask your pets! ūüėČ We hope to see you there!
