Blessing of the Animals
In celebration of St Francis Day, when we remember this Saint of the Church who loved all of creation, we will be blessing Animals! We will give thanks for the many ways God’s creatures enrich and bless our lives. This year, there are three opportunities for you to have your pets blessed so choose the one that works best for you and your animals.
Recognizing that your love for your animals lives on after they are gone, you are also welcome to bring a photo so we can honour their place in your heart.

Walk by Blessings – 1018 Nelson St.
We will be stationed on the street outside of our Salon’s doors at 1018 Nelson St. One of us will be offering blessings and treats from there while the other will wander through the neighbourhood to Nelson Park and to the Burrard street, near St. Paul’s Hospital. The hope is that if you cannot bring your pet to us, we will come to you. Please note that for the in person blessings, precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19 will be in place and must be followed to participate.
