Pet Blessing

“Pets show us unconditional love. The Feast of St. Francis gives us an opportunity to honor that and to honor our pets that give us comfort, satisfaction, and peace,” said Church of the Holy Apostle Rector, the Reverend Moki Hino.

“I love how incredibly open the Church of the Holy Apostles is to all people as well as to all animals; not just cats and dogs, but goats, pigs, chickens, sheep and horses too.  If you can bring it, it’ll get blessed,” said church member, Kim Arakawa.
