October 14th Blessing of the Animals
afternoon OCTOBER 14TH at 3:30 pm on the church lawn. we will
honor and bless those special beloved members of our families
who have fur, feathers, fins, or scales,---and more often than
not---more than two legs! Yes, it is that day that we celebrate
and give thanks for our pets. It is always great fun and sometimes
even a little chaotic. There will be non-allergenic treats for
the pets. Each pet and human companion will be individually
blessed and each animal will receive their own special medal
and certificate. All you need to do is bring your pet on a leash
or in a crate and join the fun. If you don't have your own pet,
come and enjoy those of others---and yes---we have even been
known to bless special Teddy Bears and favorite stuffed animals.
Please invite your neighbors and friends and their pets and
come to be a part of this joyous occasion.
for Something to Do?
We can always use help; there are many opportunities to serve:
Altar Guild - Ushers -- Readers - Crucifer - LEM -- Hospitality
and Sing with Us:
Tuesday, October 9th at 7:00 p.m. we will continue our favorite
hymn night. We will be singing songs that are familiar and easy
to sing, as well as occasionally going over songs scheduled
for the upcoming Sundays. We sing for about an hour and then
have refreshments in the parish hall with great fellowship.
Hope you can join us and bring a friend or two.
Following worship service, we have a wonderful time of fellowship
with our friends and a great opportunity to greet visitors.
A special thanks to all who make this happen by volunteering
to serve as coffee hostess. There is a sign-up sheet in the
parish hall every month giving you the opportunity to serve.
Coffee is always served. The snack can be a slice of cake, cookies,
sandwiches, chip and dip, crackers and cheese, etc—and
recently root beer floats were a big hit. This was never intended
to be an entire meal, just a snack; some wish to serve more
and that is fine. That is their gift to you, so just say “thanks.”
If you are not able to serve, you might consider buying coffee,
creamer, sugar, small plates, cups, napkins etc.
Please join us each Sunday for this fellowship. If you have
questions, feel free to ask one of the ECW officers: Paula,
Joyce or Carol.
The vestry meets at 7:00 p.m. on the fourth Tuesday of each
month. Meetings are open to all members of St. Paul’s.

check your privacy settings. I recommend you set them to Friends
only. (Jon Kidwell)
