Animals of all types, shapes and sizes are invited to receive a special blessing at 1 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 4 at St. Ann Center for Intergenerational Care.
Deacon Pat LaPointe, Pastoral Coordinator South Shore Parishes of Milwaukee, will preside at this celebration of the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, patron saint of animals. The blessing will take place in the east parking lot of St. Ann Center’s Stein Campus, 2801 E. Morgan Ave.
Pet owners are asked to wear masks and keep six feet apart from others attending the blessing. If the actual animal is not able to be present, it can be represented by a picture or its collar, leash or toy.
St. Ann Center provides health and educational day services to children, frail elders and adults with disabilities, all under one roof. The center champions a home-based, intergenerational approach that emphasizes the dignity of each client and child. Its mission is based on the Franciscan values: reverencing all creation, making peace, showing compassion and creating a caring community.
