White Rock Dog Park

All are invited to attend our annual celebration of the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, when we offer thanks to God for all of his magnificent creation and especially for our animal friends.

This year, the blessing is happening (rain or shine) at the White Rock Dog Park. at noon. St. Francis loved “All Creatures of our God and King,” so bring out your well-loved pet, whatever its genus or species.

No critter is too big or too small, but please bring your pet appropriately leashed. If you don’t have a pet, bring a favorite plant.

There will be treats for all (four-legged and two-legged) creatures after the celebration.
