RANGELEY – The Church of the Good Shepherd in Rangeley invites the community to a Blessing of the Animals on Sunday, October 2nd at 1:00 PM, on the church’s lakeside lawn at 2614 Main Street, Rangeley.

The custom of blessing animals is conducted in remembrance of St. Francis of Assisi and his love for all creatures great and small. The service will feature short readings and an individual blessing for each animal in attendance. Stuffed animals are also welcome to be blessed, as are photographs of pets who would not find attending the live event a blessed experience! Free-will donations will be collected to benefit the Franklin County Animal Shelter.

To find out details about church events, visit their website www.goodshepherdrangeley.org or Facebook Page: Good Shepherd Church Rangeley Maine, or call the church office at 207-864-3381. They offer regular Sunday worship at 7:30 and 9:30 AM.
