Blessing of the Animals
Sunday, October 1, 2023, 5:30 PM
Bring your pet - dog, cat, chicken, or other - to be blessed on Sunday, October 1, at 5:30 pm in the Van Every Courtyard at Holy Comforter. Pets of another denomination or faith, or no faith at all, and step-pets and grand-pets are also welcome!
Pictures of pets that don't travel well, so need to be blessed at a distance, and stuffed animals are welcome, too. We will also remember those pets that have died, and photos are welcome. Bring pet food to share with others through Loaves & Fishes. We'll have fun raffle prizes. Invite your fellow animal lovers to join us for this relatively brief service honoring of St. Francis.
