Pet Blessing of Animals with Deacon Denny Duffell

Pet Blessing of Animals with Deacon Denny Duffell
10/4/2021, 3:15 PM 4:15 PM


On Monday, Oct. 4 at 3:15pm, Deacon Denny will hold the annual Pet Blessing as a "drive-through blessing" similar to last year's event. This is a way to honor and celebrate the Feast Day of St. Francis of Assisi, patron saint of animals. We're not able to have pets walked in on campus, but all are welcomed to bring their pet in their car for a drive-through blessing.

Parents/students are welcomed to bring their pet in their car, or a picture of their pet, or a stuffed animal that the student wants blessed. All will remain in the car (entering through the Lower Lot Playground area), but Deacon Denny will offer blessings to each. 

Please Note: Parents can pick up their children and then go through the car line again at 3:15pm to receive this blessing, or just go through for the first time starting at 3:15pm. (This way those who are not having pets blessed can pick up their children and go through the pick-up line first.) Pets are not able to be brought on campus at this time except through the drive-through. This year, Fr. Tim Clark is not able to join due to a scheduling conflict.
