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.



Cute!



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!!!

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

Hi, Reina.
I told Asta that here we don't have those blessings but I have a St. Francis of Assisi that was blessed at the church.
Your harness/dress is like the ones my grandma makes for me! You look beautiful!
Have a nice day

What a pretty outfit you have one! I have a St. Francis medal from my mom's friend which say "Bless my dog." It looks like this:
