Blessing of the Animals October 14 One day a year St. Paul’s goes to the dogs …and cats….and gerbils…and other furry friends and this year, Sunday, October 14 is that special day. In honor of the feast day of St. Francis of Assisi, we will be hosting a special “blessing of the animals” immediately before the service. All animals (please leash dogs and properly contain other pets) are welcome to stay for the service. If you are unable to bring a loved pet, a photograph will suffice. There will also be a special memorial prayer for those pets who have passed in the past year.
Dismas House Donations Dismas House, a place in Worcester that helps the homeless and former offenders reenter the "real world," is currently looking for donations for their Winter Heat Fund. Dismas recently lost their heating funding, and needs monies to keep their homes warm. You can find out more and donate at www.dismasisfamily.org. There is also a list of items that Dismas has on their "Wish List."
Email Update Our Diocese has asked for email addresses of parishioners, so we thought this would also be a good time to update the email list. Please let us know if you'd like us to add/change or remove your email address from our distribution list. (The distribution list is what we use to send out announcements each Friday, inform parishioners if church is closed due to weather or other issues, and send out other timely but important messages.) Except for our Diocese, we do NOT share the email list with anyone.
