Yearly Blessing Of The Animals. 15791
Council: 15791 - FALMOUTH
One council brother assisted one of our Priests in the yearly Blessing of the Animals at Sacred Heart Church in Yarmouth on Saturday October 5, 2019. Blessing of the animals in honor of Saint Francis Assisi has been a tradition for a number of years here at the Parish of the Eucharist. Around 32 people were in attendance today along with their favorite and special animal. A special reading was done as part of the blessing, followed by a sprinkling of Holy water on the animals by the priest. There was plenty of socializing by all those present. Saint Francis would be pleased to have seen this ceremony today in honor of those animals present.
