Where else would an animal-loving church be on a hot, summer afternoon than picnicking with the pups! St. Augustine’s brought a tent, table, chairs and animal/people treats to share on July 12th at Citizens for Human Action’s Picnic with the Pups, a fundraiser for this animal shelter. Fr. Ron and Fr. Philip blessed all sorts of animals, and a cheerful St. Augustine’s team handed out St. Augustine’s golf tees, sunglasses, lollipops, and flashlights to the owners and other interested passers-by. St. Francis’ blessing of the animals is in October, but St. Augustine’s decided to use this community venue to share early animal blessings and information about the church. The afternoon brought blessings for all of us.
