Blessing of the Pets

Fr. David Preuss, OFM Cap. sprinkles holy water on a pet dog.As part of the celebration of the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, patron of animals and creation, we invite you to bring your pet or service animal to the Creation Garden at the Solanus Casey Center on Sunday, October 2 to be blessed by our Capuchin Friars.

The Blessing of Pets will take place rain or shine outside in the Creation Garden located off Mt. Elliott Street. In the event of inclement weather, we will bless pets underneath the covered awning.

Please note: Only service animals are permitted inside the Solanus Casey Center/St. Bonaventure Chapel.
