From Father Walsh… BLESSING OF ANIMALS AND PETS:
On the feast of St. Francis of Assisi we have the tradition of blessing the creatures of God’s creation. With his namesake, Pope Francis, we also want to bless the whole earth and protect it.
We will have the blessing of animals and pets in the upper parking lot of St. John’s next Saturday, October 3rd at 11:00 a.m.
ADULT FAITH FORMATION: We have religious education classes for our children from grade 1 to Confirmation age all through the school year. But we don’t have much for our grown-ups other than the Sunday homily – and we grown-ups have as much need, even greater, to deepen our knowledge of God and enhance our faith.
We will be meeting on Wednesday evenings, starting in October, from 7:30-8:30 p.m. downstairs of the rectory. These classes will be for adults who are not Catholic, but would like to know more about our Catholic ways, beliefs and traditions. In addition, these classes will be open to all adult Catholics who would like to know more about their faith, and want to deepen it. If you are interested, or know others who are, be sure to call
