Feast Day of Saint Francis of Assisi

Blessing of the Animals
Thurs., Oct. 4th, 2012
6:00 pm
Vancouver Catholic Worker’s
Samaritan House
1143 E. Pender St.,

The blessing of each animal, by name, means that health, healing and life are being mediated from God for the benefit of the animal in its relationship with its human partners.   The blessing is not to reinforce the separation of human animals and other animals. Instead, we are reinforcing our common kinship by blessing ALL animals--human and otherwise.

All are welcome
whether they have
no legs or many

Your Hostess:  Roni Marie
