The Blessing of the Animals service will be Oct. 6 at 10 a.m. in the Smithville United Methodist Church parking lot. The community is invited to bring their animals to be blessed.

This service is a way of giving thanks for all the joy and comfort animals give. This service began in honor of St. Francis of Assisi, who is the patron saint of animals.

During the service all the animals will receive a personal blessing. All animals need to be in cages, carriers, or on a leash or halter.

All animals are welcome unless they slither. Due to the minister’s lack of appreciation of snakes, leave all snakes at home.

Smithville United Methodist Church is located at 243 N. Milton St. in Smithville.
