About the Event

Each year St. Francis remembers the pets we have lost in our life. Losing a pet is like losing a special and unique relationship in our life. Many have experienced the loss and their grief is overlooked often leaving a wound that seeks healing.

We at St. Francis Community of Faith for All People acknowledge our pets as members of our families and faith community. Our pets who are ill are added to our prayer list and lifted in prayer each week at our liturgy. Our pets who cross over the Rainbow Bridge are remembered at our liturgy as well. Once a year close to the feast of St. Francis, the saint of all creatures who saw the Divine in creation, we celebrate the love and life of our pets who have transitioned.

In addition after our liturgy we bless our pets and welcome all to bring their pets to our community for a special prayer and blessing in thanksgiving for all the love our little ones bring us.

Please join us on October 7th at 4 PM for our Memorial Mass and 5 PM for the Blessing of our pets.

Please see the flyer attached for more information.

All are always welcome to pray with us and come for a blessing.
