Blessing of the animals

Sunday, Oct. 4th, 1:30 to 3 p.m. 

Near the Statue of Our Lady of Victory


Come join your parish family as Fr. John Robert imparts this very special blessing to our cherished pets. This custom is conducted in remembrance of St. Francis of Assisi’s love for all creatures


This year due to the Covid 19 Pandemic, we will not be able to have the short prayer service before the blessings as in past years. Fr. John Robert will be available to bless your pets between 1:30 and 3:00 pm. This will allow ample time so we can maintain social distancing.


You and your pet will line up for the blessing which will take place at the Our Lady of Victory Statue.  Social distancing of no less than six feet must be maintained and you must wear a face mask or equivalent face covering at all times.
