Blessing of the Animals is Thursday at Sacred Heart

October 3, 2018

LA PORTE – The Catholic Youth Ministry is hosting their annual Blessing of the Animals on Thursday.

The blessing will be held at Sacred Heart Church, 201 Bach St., La Porte, starting at 6 p.m. All pets are welcome, regardless of size and breed. The ministry asks that pet owners properly leash or cage their pets.

“All pets are welcome, goats, gerbils, rabbits, ponies, chickens, mice etc. as long as they are leashed or contained. We are not responsible for loose animals” said Deacon Frank Zolvinski.

The event takes place on the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, founder of the Franciscan Order and name sake of the current Pope Francis.

St. Francis is the patron saint of animals.

Deacon at Sacred Heart Frank Zolvinski and Youth Minister Tori Perez are coordinating the event and can be contacted at fzolvinski@sacredheartlp.org
