Pets are invited to be blessed
Some saints’ feast days are for people everywhere, not just Catholics.
In fact, for the Feast Day of St. Francis of Assisi, you don’t even have to be a person. St. Francis (1181-1226) founder of the Franciscans, is the patron saint of animals, and in his honor a life-affirming, critter-loving ceremony called the Blessing of the Animals is celebrated each year at many a Christian altar.
All are invited to join us Wednesday at 5:30 p.m. for the blessing of animals at St. Theresa Catholic Church Parking Lot, 1041 Lyons Blvd.
This Blessing of the Animals is free to the public and their pets. Everyone is encouraged to bring their dogs, cats, birds, lizards, rabbits, pot-bellied pigs, fish tortoises and turtles and other well-behaved pets.
Dogs should be on leashes, and cats should be in carriers.
