Pet Blessing 2018

On Sunday, September 30th, Holy Family held its annual pet blessing during the 10 AM worship service in the outdoor chapel. Many dogs, and a few cats, attended the service with their humans and received a blessing in honor of St. Francis of Assisi, patrol saint of animals. Photos from this special service can be viewed by clicking HERE.
 
In addition to the pet blessing, this day was also named Social Media Sunday by the wider Episcopal Church. Members and guests of Holy Family were encouraged to share special photos and moments from the day on social media using the hashtag #SMS18.

Bench Blessing

 
On Sunday, September 23rd, representatives from Girl Scout Troop 183 in Fishers participated in a special ceremony to bless the playground bench they donated to Holy Family. The scouts gathered over 400 pounds of bottle and container caps and lids that were recycled and transformed into the bench. The bench was a gift to the church in thanksgiving for using the space for Girl Scout meetings over the past five years. Following the blessing, the scouts chatted with Father Bruce, Mother Cathy, and members of the congregation about the project.
