Every year Holy Cross Catholic Church in Lafayette blesses... the beasts. Father Howard Blessing welcomes parishioners and visitors to bring their pets for a special blessing. This year the event will be held on Saturday, September 30th at 9:00am. Father Blessing joined Rob and Bernie on Acadiana's Morning News.

All are welcome to our annual Animal and Pet Blessing. We gather in a spirit of caring community for our beloved pets and animals. In the words of Joan Chittister: Great God...you have given us animals whose lives speak to us of devotion and heart, of patient endurance, of the power of faithful presence and of love without reason.

Join us this Saturday morning, for fellowship and blessing for our beloved animal friends.Invite your friends and family. We will be collecting a love offering for ARF (local Animal Rescue Foundation).
