Animal Blessing 2018

Every year on the feast day of St. Francis of Assisi, our Regional Parishes of Tacoma has ritual of animal blessing. Thanks Fr. James Harbaugh for taking care of this ritual this year. 

Good St. Francis, you loved all of God's creatures. To you they were your brothers and sisters. Help us to follow your example of treating every living thing with kindness. St. Francis, Patron Saint of animals, watch over my pet and keep my companion safe and healthy. Amen
