St. Francis is remembered for his particular care and devotion to God’s creation. The community is invited to gather in the churchyard at All Saints’ Episcopal Church at the corner of 4th & Court Streets in Portsmouth and to bring their pets of any shape or size – appropriately restrained for everyone’s safety! In case of inclement weather, we will gather in the Church Parish Hall. For those beloved creatures which are not “portable,” the Rev. Stephen Cuff, Rector of All Saints’ Episcopal Church, would be pleased to offer such a blessing at your home, pasture, or barn at your convenience. Phone All Saints’ Church at 740-353-7919 for more information.
