My children and my former students when I taught in a parochial school all loved the Blessing of the Animals Day. They have true affection for their pets (and for many children, their favorite stuffed animals) and are grateful for the chance to share that love with their congregations. Several of the TWIN schools celebrated the Feast Day of Saint Francis, for whom this blessing takes place, with their students. The benediction shared above in Spanish could be one useful tool in the Network schools.
How did your students celebrate this special occasion? -Mary Bridget Burns
