Fall Fair and Blessing of the Animals

Saturday, October 5, 10am-2pm | St. Paul’s Chapel
 

Families and children of all ages enjoyed this celebration of creation in honor of Saint Francis of Assisi, patron saint of ecology. Pets were blessed in a short service; plus there was music, crafts, and games; new friends made at the petting zoo; and participants learned about Trinity’s many activities for families with children, youth, and adults.
