On Sunday, October 9 at 10 a.m. we will welcome our Bishop, The Rt. Rev. David Rice and our new Canon to the Ordinary, The Rev. Anna Carmichael to St. Francis. Bishop David will preach and Canon Anna will celebrate Communion. The Rev. Deacon Carolyn Woodall from St. James, Sonora, and The Rev. Jude Hill, SSF are also expected to attend. During the service, we will offer to bless any animals who attend with their caretakers. Everyone is invited to bring pets of any species to church that day. Please use appropriate measures to keep your pet secure, such as leashes for dogs, goats, and sheep, and carriers for cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, chickens, turtles, tarantulas, etc. Horses, cows, elephants, and other very large animals will have to be blessed outside due to space restrictions. As always, all are welcome!
