Both Trinity and St. Thomas are holding Blessing of the Animals in honor of St. Francis' feat day, Sunday, Oct. 2 at 4 p.m.
Both services will provide light refreshments afterward.
Here are St. Thomas's rules: Pets of all sizes and types are welcome, although they must be on leashes, or in cages or carriers.Last year's event drew about large group of people with pets including dogs, cats, guinea pigs, rabbits, birds and fish.
Some pets present logistical challenges. If a person is unable to bring a pet to the service, Rev. Grace will bless a photograph of the animal or a stuffed animal representation.
