Blessing of the Animals
Sunday, October 3, 4 pm
Celebrate our beloved pets and animals that God has blessed us with! Join in the pet parade led by the Mounted Patrol and revel in the sounds of the SJD Children's Choirs during this child-led event featuring readings, a recitation of the prayer of St. Francis of Assisi, and pet blessings by our clergy.
This event coincides with the Feast Day of St. Francis of Assisi. Read about St. Francis of Assisi, patron saint of animals here.
