Blessing of the Animals

Rain or shine, bring your beloved pet and enjoy a beautiful (and possibly rainy) fall day as we follow in the footsteps of St. Frances of Assisi in the Blessing of the Animals.  
Your special creature will receive a special blessing, a special blessing scarf and/or a certificate of blessing commemorating the day.  Please bring your pets on a leash or in a carrier of some sort.  If you have an easily frightened or aggressive animal loved one, please bring a photo and we'll bless them too.  You may want to bring a lawn chair and a hat and a jacket.  We'll be outside weather permitting.
