Home Blessing of the Animals
The blessing of pets and animals is often celebrated on October 4, the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi. You are invited to stop by the Parish Office on Friday, October 2nd between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. to pick up your complimentary “Blessing Bag” for your family. It contains a prayer, Holy Water, and directions to bless your family pet(s). Blessing Bags will also be available after all Masses this weekend, October 3rd and 4th.
St. Francis’ devotion to God was expressed through his love for all of God’s creation. He praised all creatures as brothers and sisters under God.
