Blessing of the Pets

Oct 5 at 11:00 am - 11:15 am

All pets are invited to the piazza (rain or shine) for our annual Blessing of the Pets.

“This custom is conducted in remembrance of Saint Francis of Assisi’s love for all creatures.

Francis, whose feast day is October 4th, loved the larks flying about his hilltop town. He and his early brothers, staying in a small hovel, allowed themselves to be displaced by a donkey.

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.” And there was testimony in the cause for Saint Clare of Assisi’s canonization that referred to her little cat!”

Pets and Owners will receive a blessing of holy water. This blessing and event is an opportunity to offer thanksgiving to God for the abundant goodness of creation.
