Blessing of the Pets at the Elementary Campus
As a way of celebrating the Feast of St. Francis, the elementary students held a special “Blessing of the Pets” prayer service on Friday, October 4th. Monsignor Ed Hankiewicz, Pastor of St. Isidore Parish presided. It was a perfect day for furry friends to join us at All Saints Academy. We had many dogs, cats and even a few guinea pigs!
Almighty and everlasting God, Creator of all things and giver of all life, let your blessing be upon all these animals. May our relationships with them mirror your love, and our care for them be an example of your bountiful mercy. Grant the animals health and peace. Strengthen us to love and care for them as we strive to imitate the love of Jesus Christ our Lord and God’s servant Francis. Amen.
