The Pumpkins are Coming and Pets will be Blessed!
The good news is that the pumpkins will arrive on Saturday, Oct. 3rd at 9:00 am!! Please come out with your friends and family members to help with the unloading. There will also be hot dogs and chili (take out style) after we finish.
The "better news" is that now we have even more reason to come to St. Augustine's Saturday morning, because in addition to the Pumpkins, we will also be Blessing Pets in celebration of the Feast of St. Francis at 10:00 am in the Courtyard. One slight change is that we will do curbside blessings from 10:30 to 11:00 as planned, but these will take place on the Haring Road side of the church.
I look forward to seeing you Saturday morning for pumpkins, pets, and the joy that comes when we gather as a community to work, pray, and play together.
