Blessing of the Animals

St. Louise de Marillac will bless the animals on Saturday, October 5th at 9:30 AM on the basketball courts at the Annual “Blessing of the Animals.”

It has been a Catholic tradition to bless our animals on or near the feast day of St. Francis. Please bring your pets to be blessed on this day by Fr. Robert Fulton! Bring your cats, dogs, guinea pigs, fish, lizards, snakes, birds, mice, rabbits, turtles, hamsters, etc. There will be a prayer and a blessing that is done in the spirit of St. Francis who had a particular affinity to animals.
