Pet Blessing on the Feast of Saint Francis of Assisi

CLICK HERE to see pictures of our Pet Blessing 2012

Here at Saint Tars we have a long-standing tradition of giving thanks for God's gift of pets in our lives by asking God's blessing and protection for them on the Feast of St Francis of Assisi, Patron Saint of Animals. This year the feast, always celebrated on October 4, falls on a Saturday. So we will celebrate our

Annual Saint Tars Pet Blessing on Saturday, October 4, 2014 at 4 pm
in the Church Parking Lot or in case of rain, in the Rectory Garage behind the gym.

Our blessing prayers will be brief, to correspond with Fido's and Fluffy's attention span. You'll have plenty of time to take them home after the Blessing and come back for 5 pm Mass. All animals are welcome... from gerbils and fish to chickens and ducks, as well as everything in between! If your pet can't come for any reason, bring a picture, a toy or whatever reminds you of your pet so we can do the blessing vicariously! We hope to see you there.
