An International Blessing of Our Animals

Churches around the world recently celebrated something that St. Francis of Assisi started almost 800 years ago: blessing our animals. It was Francis who first introduced the idea that human beings are only one of a myriad of creations of God and all are blessed in God’s “eyes.” At Transfiguration Fr. Bob did a service for blessing of the animals as well as blessing animals in the church parking lot. In Kelowna, British Columbia a service was also held. Our Canadian parishioners who currently cannot travel to Arizona had pets blessed there by retired Canon Julia Craig who is a member of our evening zoom compline group.
