Blessing of the Animals

Tuesday, October 3, 2017 Blessing of the Animals

In honor of the Feast of St. Francis, CCDS will have a Blessing of the Animals service and each class will gather in the courtyard of the school at 8:00 a.m.  Parents are invited to bring a pet to school for the service. If a pet is unable to come, students are encouraged to participate by bringing a picture of their pets (drawn or printed and even imaginary!). The general service begins with a few prayers of thanksgiving. After we pray together, there will be people who will pray over every pet on campus. Pets must leave the CCDS campus immediately after the pet blessing service by 8:30 a.m. to allow for a normal instructional day.
