Animal blessings at St Mary of the Angels

Last Sunday was a special day. It was the feast of St. Francis of Assisi and there was an animal fair at St Mary of the Angels. In the afternoon, there was a blessing for animals!

Dom was there.


Puppy dachie! Makes me feel old.

There was a horse.

And a cow!

Someone brought her pet bird for blessing!

Someone was dressed as St Francis! Can you spot it?

And here’s me in the queue with dad waiting to be blessed.

Oh, and mummy bought me a new harness/dress.

I love it!!!

  3. My Reina,

    I am so glad you went & got blessed. We go to St James the Apostle every year but we didn’t make it this year….Not to worry Father Charlie said he would do a private blessing this weekend just for us. Last year there was a duck and a iguana….boy was he a big LIZARD. LOVE your boy Jacks

  4. asta’s church was having similar blessing too. hmm… is that a normal for all the church to have blessing for animals on a special day?
