Blessing of the Animals
[St. Francis’] response to the world around him was so much more than intellectual appreciation or economic calculus, for to him each and every creature was a sister united to him by bonds of affection. That is why he felt called to care for all that exists. – Pope Francis
St. Francis was a great lover of animals, partly because of their unconditional love. Bring your beloved pets to the abbey grounds, where Fr. John Kastenholz, O. Praem., will bless them. Gather in the parking lot on the north side of the abbey.
- Friday, 3:30 p.m. (rain or shine)
- Celebrant: Fr. John Kastenholz, O. Praem.
