Blessing of petsnd animals is often celebrated of the feast of St. Francis of Assisi. To bless is more than an expression of goodwill and caring. To bless is to impart God's power in person! The blessing of each animal, by name, means that health, healing and life are being mediated from God for the benefit of the animal. Since the Lombard Vet Hospital isn't having their annual Pet Blessing Mother Mo has decided to have us partner with Pastor Amy Gillespie from Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, 350 E. Madison Street Lombard, IL 60148.
