Blessing of the Animals on October 6, 2018
Honor the special animals in your life by bringing them to be blessed at the San Marcos Farmers market on October 6, 2018 at 10 a.m. Reverend Tim Bauerkemper, pastor of the First Lutheran Church in San Marcos, will administer the blessings. Fittingly, the event will take place just two days after the feast of St. Francis of Assisi, which commemorates the life of the patron saint of animals and the environment. Pastor Tim, who has blessed animals from dogs and cats to guinea pigs and horses, said people can also bring a photograph of their pet to be blessed if they can’t bring the animal. Please have all pets leashed or in a carrying crate.
