Animals to receive blessings
Our Lady of the Lake Catholic Church will hold its third annual animal blessing at 10 a.m. Oct. 3 on the church lawn, 650 A Ave. in downtown Lake Oswego.
The custom of blessing animals is conducted in remembrance of St. Francis of Assisi and his love of animals. Archbishop John Vlazny, with the assistance of OLL pastors Father John Kerns and Father Chuck Wood, will bless the animals.
Those whose pets are unable to attend are encouraged to bring a photo of the pet to the blessing and those who do not have pets are welcome to bring stuffed animals.
It is requested that pets be leashed, haltered, caged or crated.
