THE SEASON OF CREATION
The Season of Creation is celebrated by faith communities around the world as a time for renewing, repairing, and restoring our relationship to God, one another, and all of creation. The Episcopal Church and the Diocese of California join this international effort for prayer and action for climate justice and an end to environmental racism and ecological destruction. Likewise, St. Mary's joins the global presence in turning our attention to address the urgent need to heal our relationships with creation and with each other.
Commemoration of the Feast of St. Francis & St. Clare with the Blessing of Pets or Stuffed Animals
Each year St. Mary’s commemorates the Feast of St, Francis, the patron saint of animals, the environment and the namesake of our city and St. Clare of Assisi, his apostle.
Both humans and their pets or stuffed animals are welcome at the services as we offer gratitude for the companionship of our animal friends and bestow a special individual blessing on each pet or stuffed animal.
