Blessing Events


The Blessing of the Animals - "The Feast of St. Francis"

When we bless something, we focus our attention on the perfection that God put into it when God created it. When we bless what is good in our lives we increase it and recognize it as a channel of God's grace in our lives. In the Blessing of the Animals, we give thanks for the ways in which they enrich our lives, and recognize our role as faithful stewards of God's creation.







The Blessing of the Bicycles

Bicycles provide humans beings with multiple uses: for transportation, for recreation and leisure, for physical fitness. In our Blessing of the Bicycles, we give thanks to God for the opportunities which they provide for us to cultivate and enjoy these physical aspects of our being.
