St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, 335 Locust St. in downtown Johnstown, will hold an Apple Festival Bake Sale and Blessing of the Animals 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 2, in the church courtyard.

All things apple and assorted baked goods will be available for purchase. Proceeds from the sale will benefit St. Mark’s Digital Ministries.

Everyone is invited to bring their beloved pet of any species for a special blessing by St. Mark’s priest the Rev. Nancy L. Threadgill. She said, “No purchase is needed to receive a blessing. Please keep dogs on leashes and other pets gently restrained as appropriate for their species.

”Please wear a mask and socially distance during this event.”
