All wel­come for an­nual cel­e­bra­tion at St Mark’s

Maroochy Weekly - - LIFE -

ALL Crea­tures Great and Small: Bless­ing of the an­i­mals has come to be a well known ser­vice at St Mark’s Angli­can Church.

Whether they are furred, finned or feath­ered, all an­i­mals are wel­comed to the short ser­vice.

The af­ter­noon will be held on Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 1 from 3pm at St Mark’s Angli­can Church, Main Street, Bud­erim and will also in­clude a bar­be­cue.

It is held as part of the St Mark’s cel­e­bra­tions of the feast day of St Fran­cis of As­sisi and to give thanks for the gifts that com­pan­ion emails bring into peo­ple’s lives. The Feast of St Fran­cis of As­sisi is cel­e­brated by nu­mer­ous Catholic and Angli­can churches around Aus­tralia, with some an­i­mal so­ci­eties also host­ing special fundrais­ing and aware­ness events that com­bine the Feast of St Fran­cis of As­sisi with World An­i­mal Day on Oc­to­ber 4.

St Fran­cis founded the Catholic Church’s Fran­cis­can or­der and is re­mem­bered for his gen­eros­ity to the poor and his love for an­i­mals and na­ture.

For more in­for­ma­tion call St Mark’s on 5445 2060.
