We still have spaces available for the Blessing of the Animals in the Beech Grove on Sunday at 2 p.m. This will be our first in-person gathering since March 15, and I am very excited to see some of you face-to-face for the first time since then.
Diocesan Covid protocols limit attendance to 50 people (including clergy and other participants), so we ask that you sign up at the link below if you plan to attend: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/8050F49ACA822A1FD0-blessing
Everyone must wear a mask and practice social distancing. And if you want to be seated during the service you will need to bring a blanket or chairs. And as always, we ask that animals be on leashes or in carriers. Some people bring photos of their animals to be blessed.
Our practice in the past was to have the Blessing of the Animals on Sunday morning, with a Eucharist as part of the service. This year the afternoon service will purely for the animals — with a brief scripture readings, a few prayers and then the blessing of each animal. There WILL be the usual live-streamed service at 10 Sunday morning.
There’s some good news to share about one of our parishioners. Sean Robertson, a senior at Roswell High School, has been named a National Merit Semifinalist, based on his PSAT scores. Congratulations, Sean!!!
See you at Compline this evening at 8.
