Blessing of the Animals 2015


St Francis' Blessing of the Animals event on Sat 17th October 2015, complete with warm and sunny weather, was a wonderful community event. Thank you to all the families who attended and those who helped on the day.

A variety of activities including Petting Zoo for the children (and a couple of adults) entertained families as they patiently awaited their turn with Father Phil and Father Paul, who lovingly bestowed blessings to Dogs, Cats, Guinea Pigs and Rabbits. 

We raised $130 for the RSPCA 'Living Ruff' Program. A wonderful service that assists homeless people in caring for their pets.

Thank you to...

Paddo PetsSt Francis of Assisi Primary School P&F Committee and the Come in Centre for providing Food, coffee and cakes on the day.Ethica Accessories and  Cana Communities  and their fair trade items. 

The Art and Craft Stall kept busy making sweet Doily Angels.

This year the Parish held a spirituality stall with information about St Francis and many came to enjoy the peaceful beauty of our beautiful church.

We look forward to seeing you all again next year.
