Animal Blessing 2019

October 6, 2019

Sunday, October 6, was a perfect afternoon for the Annual Animal Blessing at St. Mary’s Holy Family Church in Kensington.

This year it was mostly Canine Canadians attending the Blessing.

But there was one intrepid Hamster who arrived in a pink ball.

Here are some photos of the event:


A Reading from the Book of Job

“Ask the animals, and they will teach you;

the birds of the air, and they will tell you;

ask the plants of the earth, and they will teach you;

and the fish of the sea will declare to you.  

Who among all these does not know

that the hand of the Lord has done this?

In God’s hand is the life of every living thing

and the breath of every human being.”


If you have a Pet Blessing or any other happy Parish Event Send in the pictures and we will share them with everyone.
