To Walk humbly with your God . . .  ~ Micah 6 ~

 

Mass

Devotion to the Eucharist held a special place in the life of Saint Francis of Assisi. As a Franciscan University, celebration of the Eucharistic Liturgy is at the heart of Neumann's spirituality. Liturgy is celebrated at noon on weekdays during the academic year and on Sundays at 7:00p.m. in Sacred Heart Chapel. All are welcome to join with us in celebrating.

 

As you explore our web site, you will see many opportunities for liturgical ministries, such as lector, Eucharistic Minister, hospitality and music. We encourage you to be involved with our campus ministers and our Chaplain regarding these wonderful ministries.

Blessing of the Animals

 
Blessing of the Animals

At Neumann University, the custom of blessing animals is conducted each year to commemorate St. Francis of Assisi’s love for creation and all of God’s creatures. St. Francis, whose feast day is celebrated on October 4, had a special relationship with animals. Early biographers recount his preaching to the birds and his taming of the ferocious wolf of Gubbio. In recent years, Francis has been adopted world wide as the patron saint of the environment. The blessing of animals may use the following words:


Blessed are you, Lord God, maker of all living creatures. You called forth fish in the sea, birds in the air and animals on the land. You inspired St. Francis to call all of them his brothers and sisters. We ask you to bless this pet. By the power of your love, enable it to live according to your plan. May we always praise you for all your beauty in creation. Blessed are you, Lord our God, in all your creatures!  Amen.”

 

Date: October 6, 2013, at 4:00p.m. in Neumann Circle
