The Church of the Good Shepherd in Rangeley invites the community to a Blessing of the Animals on Sunday, October 1st at 1 PM, outdoors on the church lawn at 2614 Main Street in Rangeley. This event is part of the Season of Creation in the church calendar.

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.

The Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd is located at 2614 Main Street, Rangeley, Maine. They offer regular Sunday worship at 7:30 and 9:30 a.m.
