Zion Church to Host Blessing of the Animals (and Backpacks)

Zion Episcopal Church, Manchester Center, Vt. invites the community to the annual Blessing of the Animals on Sunday, October 5, at 10 a.m. This year, the Blessing of the Backpacks will be added, to mark the beginning of the new school year. On the Sunday nearest October 4, we remember Saint Francis of Assisi. The animals will be blessed outdoors and then may be returned to cars, and the Family Service will continue in the church. Please keep all dogs on leashes, cats in carriers and all animals under control. Toy animals are welcome to receive a blessing as well.

Zion Church is located at 5167 Main Street, Manchester Center, between Gringo Jack’s and Ye Olde Tavern. For more information, call 802-362-1987 or email [email protected]
