Blessing of the Animals • Animal Adoption

6 october • 2–4p


  • Pets of all shapes & sizes are welcome for a personal Blessing!
  • Animals will be available for adoption from numerous rescue groups.
  • Come rain or shine!


Pets of all shapes and sizes are invited to our annual Blessing of the Animals to honor the life of St Francis of Assisi. Animals from rescue groups will be available for adoption (puppies, rabbits & kittens).

We believe, like St. Francis, that animals minister to us in a special way. Francis had a high regard for animals because he believed they are a blessing from God which merits our gratitude and praise.

Water, parking, and restrooms are available on site.
