Blessing of Animals
September 29, 1:30-3:00pm
Come feathered, furred, or finned! Join other animal lovers to celebrate the special grace that pets bring to our community. Whether your paws are padded, hoofed or webbed – all are welcome! Arrive with the ‘Top Dog’ or the ‘Purr-fect Feline’ and you will leave with your tail waggin’ friend and a blessed attitude. All are winners of a genuine blessing at “Assisi’s Best in Show”! A special dog will be a guest visitor along with his handler, Sgt. Chris Wallis, from the Olmsted County Sheriff’s Department.
Rochester Franciscan ‘Animal Whisperers’ will conduct the blessings in Canticle Park at Assisi Heights.
