This fun and furry event will happen on Saturday, October 2nd at 2 p.m. on the side lawn of the parish. All animals welcome! Bring a photo of your beloved pet if you can’t bring it in person. Please join us even if you don’t have a pet — and tell others about it!

Every year we’ve hosted it we’ve had great fun, so don’t miss out! Feel free to share the Facebook event page with as many people as you like:

Refreshments will be available. We will be following health protocols, so please help us keep each other safe by wearing your mask and physical distancing.

Marie Nigro, parish Environmental Liaison, finds this event meaningful because she loves animals. Pictured is her long-haired calico Lucy, who died four days before the first blessing in 2018.
