October 2 10:00 A.M. Earth Mass and Blessing of the Animals
Sunday, October 2, 2016 will be a very special morning at St. Marks Church on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC. During a single morning worship service and eucharist, starting at 10:00 A.M., the St. Marks choirs, under the leadership of Jeff Kempskie, will present Earth Mass, by Paul Winter. Choirs, instruments, and dancers as well as projected images of the earth and its people and places.
In addition to music and dance, the worship service will include the annual Blessing of the Animals. The human inclusiveness to which the people of St. Marks are committed every day of the year, extends on this special Sunday to embrace our furry, finned, and feathered friends, too.
5 P.M. service (no Earth Mass) will include Blessing of the Animals.
