This weekend is the closest one to the feast day of St. Francis of Assisi – patron saint of animals – so it’s time for West Seattle’s traditional “Blessing of the Animals” events. On Saturday, you’re invited to the lobby of Providence Mount St. Vincent at 10:30 am. Then on Sunday, St. John the Baptist Episcopal Church will offer blessings in the West Seattle High School parking lot next door (3000 California SW) at noon. As The Mount’s announcement put it, it’s simply an occasion “to give thanks for all creatures great and small.” (And that means even the smallest of pets, if someone brings ‘em – check out the guinea pigs in our report on St. John’s event last year.)

  1. My doggie has kennel cough and can’t make it. Say a prayer for her while you’re there if you can :)

  2. I hope to bring my little Pomeranian! I got him through the Furry Faces adoption event almost 4 months ago, and I’m grateful every single day!!!
