Chaminade Holds Blessing of the Animals

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

In honor of the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, Chaminade College Preparatory held its annual Blessing of the Animals prayer service. While the celebration occurred the day before the October 4 feast day, the service welcomed families and their pets to the school’s Chatsworth campus.

Middle school students and faculty who did not bring pets lined up around the edge of the 8th Grade Lawn for a pet parade. At the end of the route, pets and owners were met by school chaplain, Fr. Ted Ley ’58, who blessed each animal.

While this is one of the more lively prayer services held, it is an opportunity for the middle school honor St. Francis and all of God’s creatures.
