Blessing of the Animals

Join the Franciscan Friars, dogs, cats, fish, snakes, birds, reptiles, and their owners for our annual Blessing of the Animals.  We will begin with a prayer service and end with a blessing of the animals by the Franciscan Friars, followers of St. Francis of Assisi who was experienced all of creation as his brothers and sisters.  Invite your neighbors, friends and families to bring their pets and service animals for a blessing.  We ask that you bring a donation of pet food.  Pet food will be distributed to pet owners in need of assistance by the St. Vincent de Paul Society.  PEE WEE’S ANIMAL RESCUE will also be on site with dogs up for adoption.  We hope to see you and your pets there.
