The commemoration of St. Francis, October 4, falls on a Sunday this year. In honor of that, a Blessing of Animals will take place on the Church Lawn on Sunday, October 4, at 4:30 p.m. Join us for the traditional Blessing of the Animals as we honor the saint's devotion to all living things. Bring your dogs (on a leash), cats (in a carrier), birds (in a cage) and any other pets and furry friends. The liturgy of blessing is brief and is designed for all ages. Invite your friends, for all are welcome, with or without animals!

Episcopal Relief and Development has issued an appeal for contributions directed to the crisis of refugees fleeing the conflicts in Syria and Iraq. 4.1 million people have fled Syria since the crisis began five years ago. Almost twice that number are displaced inside Syria. Working with partners in the region including the Anglican Alliance and ACT Alliance, ER-D is providing financial support to relief and resettlement efforts.
Contributions should be directed online to ER-D's Disaster Response Fund at www.episcopalrelief.org. You may also make checks payable to St. Paul's with Syria relief in the subject line.
Episcopal Migration Ministries is actively engaged in resettlement efforts. Learn how to help at www.episcopalmigrationministries.org. EMM also commends the United Nations High Commission on Refugees (UNHCR) and the World Food Program as other worthy organizations working on the ground in Syria and the immediate region. Doctors Without Borders is also providing desperately needed medical care in refugee camps. Prayerfully consider supporting one or more of these organizations..
