Bring your pets for a special blessing as we honor the ministry of St. Francis of Assisi.
Social distancing and masks required for all humans.
Why do we bless our animals?
This custom is conducted in remembrance of St. Francis of Assisi's love for all creatures. It is appropriate that we should bless those that bless us with companionship and unconditional love.
