Third Annual Blessing of the Animals

Baltimore Humane Society Memorial Park 1601 Nicodemus Rd., Reisterstown, MD

Join us for our 3rd annual Pet Blessing event on Sunday, October 2, from 2-3pm. It is a tradition in the Catholic church to hold blessings for household pets on the feast day of St. Francis of Assisi. Saint Francis is the patron saint of animals and the environment.

Father Patrick M. Carrion from Saint Bernadette Parish, will be at Baltimore Humane Society Memorial Park to perform an in-person Pet Blessing for all household pets. The public is invited to attend with their pets. Father Patrick will also bless the ashes of pets who have passed for families who wish to bring them.

All pets are welcome, but small pets, cats, and any pet who might become overwhelmed must be in a comfortable and secure pet carrier. An RSVP appreciated. or 410-833-8848 ext. 219
