Calvary’s Blessing of the Animals, in the Episcopal tradition, is an “All are welcome…!” event. Please invite your friends and neighbors, and please bring all your creatures, great and small, but PLEASE keep safety in mind! All animals should be appropriately leashed, crated, carried, or contained, and under responsible supervision at all times. If your pet is no longer with us or cannot mingle comfortably with other pets, please bring a photograph or drawing of your pet. Stuffed animals and toy pets also are welcome to receive a blessing on Saturday, October 8, at 1:00 p.m. in the Kryder Courtyard.
A reception with light refreshments for all species will be offered in the Lobby Link between the courtyard and the parking lot, and a collection of pet food items for The Food Pantry at St. Aiden’s Episcopal Church in Alden will be taken.

Bring a lawn chair and join us for a delightful Carillon concert!
Calvary's carillon has 44 bells cast in bronze mounted on a steel framework. The bells do not move but rather are struck by clappers. The clappers are connected by a mechanical linkage to keys and pedals of a console located directly beneath the bells. The carillonneur, seated at the console, uses both fists and feet to activate the clappers.
October 29, 9:30 a.m.
Good Grief is a support group for anyone who is having difficulty with a loss. It may be a pet, a divorce, or death of a loved one...whatever it is you are suffering, feel free to bring yourself and share, if you wish, your hurt with a group willing to listen. Or listen to the stories of others. It all can help. People of any - or no - denomination are welcome. In fact, all are welcome.
Next meeting dates: November 19, January 28
October 30, 3:00 p.m.
