Virtual Blessing of the Animals
The Feast of St. Francis of Assisi commemorates the life of the patron saint of animals and the environment. It is fitting that the month-long Season of Creation that started on September 1st ends on October 4th, the Feast of St. Francis. In remembrance of St. Francis' love for all creatures, you and your pet are invited to a "Virtual Blessing of the Animals" on the feast day, October 4th at 10:00AM.
To facilitate the virtual blessings, we are asking you to register your animal(s) for their blessing. Please fill out the form below, and if at all possible, please submit a photo. You do not need to be a member of the Cathedral Congregation--everyone is welcome to participate. The registration deadline is Wednesday, September 30th at 5:00PM.
For the youngest among us who might not have a pet, but a favorite stuffed animal, they are welcome to register their furry friend for a blessing too.
