In celebrations of God's creation and the Feast Day of St Francis, St Matthew's will host the Blessings of the Animals on October 8 at 3:00 PM.  It is a day that for the greater Saline County community to gather who have an eye for nature, and a love of animals and desire to thank God for their gift of watching over their pets, gardens and all of the natural order of things.  An open offering will be taken to support the Saline County Humane's Society.  Bring your animals, furred, winged, scaled, shelled, etc.  Make sure they and you can remain safe by having them leashed, harnessed, boxed, aquarium-ed, in pet carriers etc.  We will bless your pet and give you a certificate of blessing for each.
