Blessing of the Animals

This year's annual blessing of the animals being held on Veteran's Day and will spotlight the benefit and blessing that our heroic veterans receive from service dogs.  We'll share our stories of love and companionship with our 4-legged friends, sing, enjoy a meditation experience and more. 

Each pet will be blessed by one of our chaplains and each pet parents will receive a certificate.  

Please have your pet on a leash or crated.

Less-than-social animals may be left at home and blessed by photo!  

St. Francis of Assisi felt animals to be his brothers and sisters and admonished, "not to hurt our humble brethren is our first duty to them, but to stop there is not enough.  We have a higher mission - to be of service to them whenever they require it."
