Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary School will hold its Blessing of the Animals on Friday, October 3, 2014. One of God’s greatest gifts to humanity are animals; they bring everyone companionship, comfort, healing, and joy.

In anticipation of the feast of St. Frances of Assisi, the patron saint of the environment and ecology, we will have a blessing of the animals (live, stuffed, or captured in photographs) on Friday, October 3rd, at 8:00am.

Please make sure that all live animals are on a leash or in a cage. Thanks to Fr. Alan, who will preside at the ceremony.

Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary Catholic Community School, 2660 E. Orange Grove Blvd., Pasadena, (626) 793-2089 or visit school.abvmpasadena.org.
