9/3/2020 – 10/5/2020

On Sunday, October 4 and in conjunction with the feast day of St. Francis, we are having a special ZOOM service event -  Pet Blessings

You can participate in the blessing of the animals two different ways -

  • Bring your pet(s) to the 10:00 a.m. zoom service so you and your pet(s) can receive a blessing.
  • Come to the Olivet church yard at 5:00 p.m. and have your pet blessed.*
    • You can pick up a St. Francis medal for your pet.
    • Please follow social distancing practices.
    • Wearing masks will be required. 

If you wish to remember a beloved pet, we encourage you to write their name on a ribbon and tie it on the pet memorial tree outside of the small chapel.  

Enjoy this special day with your pet(s)!
