BLESSING OF PETS

St. Francis of Assisi

Sunday, October 6 at 1:00 PM, Parish Grounds, Blessed Sacrament, Throop.

Friday, October 4 is the Feast of Saint Francis of Assisi. His love of all creation reminds us to be loving stewards to our pets entrusted to our care. Everyone is invited! Bring your cats and dogs, rabbits and snakes, Hermit crabs and turtles, cows and horses! Stuffed animals are also welcome!

Who is St. Francis!

St. Francis was born in the 12th century, lived in Italy and founded the men’s Order of Friars Minor, the women’s Order of Saint Clare, and the Third Order of Saint Francis for men and women not able to live the lives of itinerant preachers. Francis is one of the most venerated religious figures in history.

He is remembered for his generosity to the poor, his willingness to minister to lepers and for his love for animals and nature. He is the patron Saint of animals and the environment.

Celebrate his feast day with a Pet Blessing!
