Blessing of the Animals
Sunday Oct 3, 2021 5:00 PM to 5:30 PM
Blessing of the Animals and Pets (Drive up blessings) We invite you to come and celebrate the Feast Day of St. Francis with us on
Sunday, October 3rd from 5PM to 5:30PM at St. Francis of Assisi Church.
The Catholic Tradition respects animals as God’s creatures, worthy of our care.
St. Francis wrote a Canticle of the Creatures, an ode to God’s living things:
“All praise to you, Oh Lord, for all these brother and sister creatures.”
Drive up and bring your favorite pet or animal, everything from dogs, cats, hamsters,
birds, fish, ferrets, turtles, lizards, and giraffes, for a special St. Francis blessing.
