Liturgy and Prayer: Pet Blessing
Thursday, October 4
St. Michael Church Plaza - Outside
On this feast day of the Patron Saint of Animals, Saint Francis of Assisi, it's customary that in remembrance of St. Francis of Assisi's love for all creatures, animals are led to churches for a special ceremony called the “Blessing of the Animals.” Bring your leashed animal, a member of your livestock, or a symbol representing God's creatures great and small. The blessing will take place outdoors on the front of church.
