Blessing of the Animals

Blessing of the Animals

St. Francis is the patron saint of animals and the environment whose feast day is celebrated on October 4. On that date, or on a nearby Sunday, people celebrate the feast day by bringing their pets to church and having their animals blessed. We’ll mark this feast by having a blessing of the animals at both parishes on October 1st, 12:00 pm at St. Joseph and 12:30 pm at St. John. Please bring your pet on a leash or in a carrier, and come to the front of either church. We look forward to seeing you and these little friends of St. Francis!

The event is finished.
