Blessing of the Animals

Bring your animals, large and small, whether real or stuffed. Even Father Ian’s cat might RSVP!

The blessing of pets and animals is often celebrated on October 4, the feast of St. Francis of Assisi, or on a weekend near that date. In the Scriptures, the act of blessing means ‘the imparting of power or life.’ The person performing the blessing is mediating that power from God to the animal involved. To bless is more than an expression of goodwill and caring, to bless is to impart God’s power in person! The blessing of each animal, means that health, healing and life are being mediated from God for the benefit of the animal in its relationship with its human partners.

This blessing will take place in the parking lot behind the Church and next to the prayer garden. If you have any questions, please call the Parish Office at (830) 569-3356.

We look forward to having everyone and their furry companions in attendance!
