Annual Blessing of Pets: Feast of St Francis

Event date: 10/7/2017 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM Export event

The animals of God's creation inhabit the skies, the earth and the sea. They share in the ways of human beings. They have a part in our lives. Francis of Assisi recognized this when he called the animals, wild and tame, his brothers and sisters. Remembering Francis' love for these brothers and sisters of ours, we invoke God's blessing of these animals and we thank God for letting us share the earth with all creatures and so our parish will be celebrating the Feast of St Francis with the annual Blessing of the Pets on Saturday October 7, 2017 at noon in front of the Rectory, rain or shine! Bring your dogs, cats, guinea pig, hamsters, frogs, turtles, fish, birds, ferrets etc, ALL PETS are welcome to receive this special blessing which will be bestowed upon by Father Damian. Please be sure that all animals are on leashes or in proper pet cages or containers to insure a safe blessing. Thank you!
