2017 Blessing of the Animals

View our photos from our most recent event held on the Sat 14th October 2017 at St Francis of Assisi Church in Paddington. A big thank you to all those who helped out and attended on the day. We were lucky to have the mounted police join us and receive their special blessing.

 

 

 

 

Blessing of the Animals 2016

The Blessing of the Animals proved to be another crowd pleaser and we were happy to see the many locals who visited St Francis on the day. Despite a windy, yet sunny, morning the priests were busy blessing  puppies, cats, birds and fish. The baby animals at the petting zoo charmed the kids and adults alike.

A sincere thank you to the dedicated people who provided food and wares for visitors.  St Francis Parents and Friends delivered on tasty Breakfast and treats while raising money for the School renovations.  The Trading Circle and Ethica Accessories sold beautiful products made by fair-trade companies in countries that are in need.

A big thank you to all the people who contributed towards the Petting Zoo.  We raised $200 for the Living Ruff program, an RSPCA initiative which supports homeless people with pets.

Thank you to Paddo Pets for providing prizes for a free raffle.

Enjoy photos taken on the day. Please call the office with any photo enquiries.

God created the great sea monsters and every living creature that moves, of every kind, with which the waters swarm, and every winged bird of every kind. God made the wild animals of the earth of every kind, and the cattle of every kind, and everything that creeps upon the ground of every kind.

And God saw that it was good....Very Good.
