2014 Blessing of Pets

This custom is conducted in remembrance of St. Francis of Assisi’s love for all creatures. This year it rained as Father John performed the Blessing in our Parish Office Lot & Garage.

The bond between person and pet is like no other relationship, because the communication between fellow creatures is at its most basic. Eye-to-eye, a man and his dog, or a woman and her cat, are two creatures of love.

No wonder people enjoy the opportunity to take their animal companions to church for a special blessing.
