Each year at the beginning of October, we celebrate what a blessing our pets, big & small, are to us!!
The Patron Saint of the Animals believed that the light of God was perfectly reflected in al of nature and nowhere is His essence better revealed than in the unconditional love, companionship and devotion of the pets we hold dear to our hearts. THis day then is for creatures, great and small to receive God’s blessing, a blessing they so richly deserve.
At St. Mary’s we gather together with out pets for as service especially for them. Each pet is individually blessed by Ft. Matt.
After the service, we enjoy fellowship and a cookout!
