Every October (around Oct 4, the Feast of St. Francis), St. George's hosts a Blessing of the Animals. This event is open to all people in the community who wish to honor and bless their pets. A short service is read, the priests move from family to family blessing pets (and pictures of pets), prayer cards and/or pet medals are provided, and treat bags are provided for dogs and cats. The families and pets of Trinity Lutheran Church have been joining us for the past couple years, which greatly ads to the festivities. The St. George's Piecemakers provide beverages and offer an array of pet quilts for sale. If you have questions, please call the church office.
This is a quilting group who focus on making quilts for any children who are in the care of Child Protective Services, as well as for Baptisms and St George’s Nursing Home residents. No quilting or sewing experience is necessary to join; just come and have fun visiting, cutting, sorting, pressing or sewing.
