To celebrate the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, St. Paul's hosts an annual Blessing of the Animals service for all God's creatures, great and small.

The service is held outdoors in the Plaza with music provided by the Children's Choirs. Please keep pets on leashes or within carriers. Stuffed animals are welcome, or bring pictures of pets for a blessing. Children must be accompanied by an adult. 

Participants are encouraged to bring pet food donations for the aniMeals on Wheels program at Interfaith Ministries for Greater Houston. Barnaby's Cafe will be giving out free dog treats while supplies last.
