Blessing of the Animals
ALL ARE WELCOME!
All creatures great and small, whether they are furry, finned, feathered, scaled, stuffed or photo, are welcome to come with their human companions to receive a blessing on Sunday, October 8. The blessing takes place at a special animal companion-dedicated service in the church at 12 Noon.
For the safety of all the animals, it is recommended that those pets that might be skittery or nervous in new surroundings come leashed or in some type of carrier.
At approximately 11:30 A.M., there will be a time of fellowship and refreshments in the Parish Hall, including coffee, tea & munchies for the people and treats for the pets. Everyone is invited to come enjoy. Bring your friends, too!
We are also accepting pet supplies to benefit Ramapo-Bergen Animal Rescue, Inc. (RBARI), the leading no-kill animal shelter in Northern New Jersey. Check out the Wish List
on their website for an idea of what is needed: https://rbari.org/donate/wishlist.html/title/general-wish-list
Sunday, October 8 @ 12 Noon

The Episcopal Church's Position on Abortion and Women's Reproductive Health
The Episcopal Church teaches that “all human life is sacred” and that there is a “tragic dimension” to all abortions. At the same time, the church stands with women in defending reproductive freedom, declaring an “unequivocal opposition” to federal and state laws that would “abridge or deny” any woman’s ability to make informed decisions about reproductive health.
This is from Presiding Bishop Michael Curry: “The Episcopal Church has tried carefully to be responsive both to the moral value of women having the right to determine their healthcare choices as well as the moral value of all life. [The Supreme Court's] decision institutionalizes inequality because women with access to resources will be able to exercise their moral judgment in ways that women without the same resources will not.”
