Howl-Alleulia - St. Ann's Services Under The Tent

By St. Ann's by the Sea | Jun 18, 2014
Howl-Allulia

You are welcome to bring your dog to the St. Ann's outdoor worship service at 9:00 a.m. Leashes are recommended. (Smile). The beloved 12th century saint, St. Francis, preached to birds and other creatures. Evidently they responded as Elaine Treharne discovered in her research as a Welsh (and Anglo-Saxonist) medeivalist. Treharne found this image of a dog howling at the Alleulia, which is pictured in this post. This image can be found at stanfordlibs.edu special collections. For more information regarding St. Ann's or our worship service, call Rev. Eileen, 466-2911.
