October 2, 2016 – Blessing of Pets

On October 2, 2016, Christ the King held its fourth annual Blessing of the Animals service at 2 pm. Pastor Matthew Groenke presided, and after prayers and scripture readings, he blessed one bunny, two cats, and 14 dogs. There were 28 humans in attendance, too.
This service is traditionally held near October 4th, which is the Feast Day of St. Francis of Assisi, who was known for his love of all of God’s creatures.
