Blessing of the Animals

Pet owners everywhere celebrate the birthday of St. Francis of Assisi by having their pets blessed on this feast day in the spirit of this patron saint of animals and ecology.

Bring your pets, a photo or even video chat them to receive the blessing. 

The Rev. Dr. Jennifer Veninga, Associate Professor of Religious and Theological Studies, and United Church of Christ minister will conduct the blessings.

Please make sure that your pet is controlled and dogs must be leashed. 

Please make sure humans are masked and have completed the TopperSafe screening.
