Beyond our traditional Sunday and holiday services, St. Francis of Assisi celebrates with special services each year.
Blessing of the Fleet
Every spring is welcomed with the blessing of the fleet in which we travel by both land and water to our lakeside service, followed by our annual church picnic. All are welcome; casual dress recommended.
Blessing of the Animals
Each year, toward the beginning of October and in honor of our patron saint, we celebrate The Feast of St. Francis and hold a “blessing of the animals” in our outdoor chapel. All are welcome to bring their furry, feathered or scaly friends to be blessed. For your (and your pet’s) safety and comfort, please restrain your animal with the necessary leash, carrier, etc. Casual dress is strongly recommended.
