The always fun Blessing of the Animals has been scheduled for October 4th at 7:30 am. We will celebrate Feast of Saint Francis, actually on his feast, by blessing all animals that come. If you would like to participate, please bring your pet(s) to the Saint Patrick Green a little before 7:30 AM. Your critters, furry, smooth, feathery or scaly friends are all welcome (this old tradition is a little hectic, but a lot of fun).
The Blessing of the Animals ceremony will begin promptly at 7:30 AM on the Green. All animals should be on leashes or in appropriate cages, chaperoned by their human companions, and taken from the school immediately following the ceremony. After the blessing, all of the students will go into the Theatre for Mass.
All are welcome to come! As always, if it is not practical for you to bring pets, your child can bring a photo of the animal so that the pet can be blessed “in absentia.” If your child does not have a pet or bringing one is not convenient, they may bring a stuff animal or a picture of an animal of their choosing. We are looking forward to welcoming some of the “extended” members of the Wolfhound family.
** If it rains, we will be cancelling this celebration. **
