Walk-Up Blessing of the Animals - Sunday, 10/2 from 4-5pm
We will be set up and ready to welcome you to our walk-up Blessing of the Animals on Sunday, October 2nd from 4-5pm in the parking lot at St. Paul's - 3290 Loma Vista Road, Ventura.
We also bless photos of animals, stuffed animals, and people!
This special event celebrates the life of St. Francis of Assisi. All are welcome - furry, fuzzy, scaly, and all! We bless pets of all kinds, and we bless photos, stuffed animals and people.
If your pet(s) don't travel well, stop by for a "To-Go Cup" of holy water that you can use at home. We'll even include a sheet with instructions on how to say the prayer to bless your animals and instructions on other uses for holy water and information on preferred methods for how to dispose of any that's leftover.
We look forward to the dogs, turtles, lizards, and kitties, but also invite the more exotic pets. Last year we blessed some chickens. That was fun! Does anyone have a camel?
