The Blessing of the Animals, a popular annual event, will take place on Sunday, October 3, at 4 p.m. in the St. John Neumann Circle on the Aston campus.
The event will open a weeklong celebration of the legacy of St. Francis of Assisi.
Fr. Jude Michael Krill, OFM Conv., will bless pets and animals of all kinds in the St. John Neumann Circle. Last year, more than 50 pets – including hamsters, fish, parakeets, rabbits, dogs and cats – were among the animals that were blessed at the event that marks the feast of St. Francis, which is officially celebrated on October 4.
All are welcome to this free event. For more information about the Blessing of the Animals, call 610-361-5307.
