Yes, our parish of St Pat’s is going to host a wonderful event: the Blessing of your pets. This is in honour of St Francis of Assisi, who cared for all creation.This special blessing  is an 800 year old tradition, performed in many churches around the world. So we are inviting all parishioners to please bring your pets to be blessed by Father Tom.

There will also be stalls with crafts, raffles and more. And of course a sausage sizzle.  Proceeds will support the RSPC Living Ruff program which helps the homeless and their pets.

When : October 20, 10.30am -12.30 pm

Where : In the grounds of St Patrick’s Church 

So come and enjoy the morning.
