Every year at around this time, Grace-St. Stephens Episcopal Church holds its Blessing of the Pets in memory of St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of pets. Two years ago was the first time the parish held the event since returning to the church building at 601 N. Tejon after the much publicized split within the congregation in 2007. This year’s blessing will be held Wednesday, October 5th at 5:30 p.m. and all are welcome. In case you’re wondering what to expect, we went a couple of years ago and put together this audio slide show.

  1. We understand there will be critters from the National Mill Dog Rescue and the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo to add to the joyful chaos of the Blessing of the Animals on Wednesday. This is a community event, and all are welcome!
