Please join us at Eisenhower Park near the gazebo south of the Rose Arbor at 10:00 AM Saturday, October 3rd. Bring your furred, finned, feathered or scaled buddies for a blessing in memory of St. Francis of Assisi's love of all creatures. Please make sure your pet is suitably restrained by leash, halter, crate, or cage. All are welcomed.
Blessed are you, Lord God, maker of all living creatures. You called forth fish in the sea, birds in the air and animals on the land. You inspired St. Francis to call all of them his brothers and sisters. We ask you to bless our pets. By the power of your love, enable them to live according to your plan. May we always praise you for all your beauty in creation. Blessed are you, Lord our God, in all your creatures! Amen.
