Trinity Lutheran Church located at 500 N. Second St. in Silverton,
Oregon invites the public to a St. Francis Blessing of the Animals
Service on Saturday, October 6 at 10:00 a.m. Bring your dogs, cats,
goldfish, hamsters, or any other species for this time of prayer and
blessing for the pets we hold dear. The pet blessing is planned for
outdoors. However, in the event of rain, it will be held under the
covered walk-way of the church. This custom is conducted by many
churches throughout the U.S. near the October 4 feast day of St.
Francis of Assisi who was known for his love for all creatures.
