 Dear 
 ,    
We thank God for a successful Women's Retreat and for Rev. Barrett Van Buren's visit last Sunday. Don't forget the Blessing of the Animals this Saturday at 3:00 pm on Emmanuel's front lawn. It is a brief but meaningful service in which we bless and thank God for our faithful friends from the animal kingdom and honor St. Francis who loved all of God's creatures so much.

May God bless your week abundantly!

Much love,

Mo. Lyn+

 
 
Blessing of the Animals

This Saturday we will continue the Emmanuel tradition of the blessing of the animals in honor of St Francis' Day. The blessing will take place this Saturday, October 3rd at 3:00 pm. This year the brief service will be held on the front lawn in an attempt to be more visible to the surrounding community and to let our neighbors know that they are welcome to come. Be sure to attend this delightful time. Each pet will receive a St Francis medal and there will be prayer cards for their owners. Be sure to invite relatives, friends and neighbors!

We Had a Wonderful Time!

The Women's Retreat at Verdugo Pines in Wrightwood last weekend was a wonderful success. Besides the women from Emmanuel, six women from St. Wilfred's, Huntington Beach attended. What delightful women they are. The retreat was led by The Rev. Kathy MacKenzie, with Carolyn Cardamis leading the music ministry. The theme, The Cup of Life, was thought provoking and deeply spiritual. During the free time some women went on hikes, others practiced archery and others climbed the rock wall. Some of us took a nap!!! It was such a relief to get out of the heat and enjoy the cool peace of the mountains. Thank you to everyone who made this wonderful time possible!
