Blessing of the Animals is Oct. 8

Aspen Community Church will hold its Blessing of the Animals at 11 a.m. Oct. 8.

“St. Francis of Assisi is known as the patron saint of animals, and it is customary for churches to hold ceremonies blessing animals near or on his feast day, which is October 4,” said Rev. Mike Nickerson, pastor at the church.

The blessing will take place on the church’s patio, and animals of all species and faiths (and their owners) are welcomed.

For more information, contact the church office at 970-925-1571.

Aspen Community Church is located at 200 E. Bleeker St.
