St. Stephen’s Hosts Animal Blessing & Oktoberfest Oct. 7
LIBERTY, September 26, 2012 - St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church will hold two of its popular community events on Sunday October 7th.
The Annual Blessing of the Animals will be held at 4:00 p.m. in the Church Commons. This event commemorates the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals. Besides bringing your pet to be blessed, pet owners are asked to bring a can or small bag of dog or cat food to be donated to a local animal shelter.
The annual Oktoberfest begins at 6:00 p.m. in the church recreation yard, so bring your favorite German dish and some drinks, and enjoy great food, music, singing and dancing. The ever-popular “Der Hungry Five Band” will provide musical enjoyment and will lead the crowd in singing popular German folk songs.
