Last Sunday we had Blessing of the Pets after the 12.00 noon Mass. Fr. Peter said a blessing from the top of the steps and blessed each animal with Holy Water.
A St. Francis prayer leaflet and Holy medal was available for all who brought their pets.
Bless My Pet – Watch Over and Protect
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.
