Animal Blessing 2017 in the Garden of St. Francis of Assisi: Furry or not, all welcome


While kitten videos often can change your mood for a few minutes, imagine for a moment what  a live experience for you and your own pets at the annual Animal Blessing at the Dominican Center at Marywood’s Garden of St. Francis of Assisi can do for your weekend.

Known for producing events that are welcoming at the core, this annual Dominican Center service invites animals of all shapes and sizes to attend this blessing. That means expect to see dogs, cats, goldfish, bunnies, salamanders, chickens, hamsters, guinea pigs, and even pot belly pigs who have all graced the event in the past.  

This year, since it is a big game day for Michigan and Michigan State, attendees who are fans of these teams can feel free to dress their pet up in their favorite school coolers. 

Officiating is Pastor Ginny Makita who will be offering a blessing to all pets and attendees…regardless if you brought a pet with you or not. Even if you have recently lost a pet, please feel free to bring a photo of your forever friend to have it blessed, ushering in a layer of comfort for your soul.
