Bring your family pet or favourite animal for a special Blessing of the Animals. 

This special event commemorates the feast of St. Francis of Assisi, where animals have been blessed since the Middle Ages. No saint is more closely associated with animals than St. Francis of Assisi, who rejoiced in the value and beauty animals bring to creation.

We ask that all pets be leashed or in their crates. Pets can also be remembered with a photo or you may bring a stuffy to represent your animal. 

And, of course, all pets are welcome to bring their humans!
