Blessing of the Animals

Animal, amphibian or reptile; from hamsters to hermit crabs to horses, not forgetting dogs and cats, mice and turtles. God’s richest blessings are bestowed on all God’s creatures each year at Sunday worship on the day in October closest to the Feast Day of St. Francis of Assissi. Rain or shine, inside or out. This is a reminder to us all that all creation belongs to God and we are privileged to share this earth with all God’s creatures.
