Annual Blessing of Family Pets at Knock Shrine

Services navigation

All creatures great and small are invited to Knock Shrine on Saturday, October 5th. The Family Centre at Knock Shrine are delighted to host the Blessing of Family Pets again this year.

The blessing is a celebration of pets and the joy that they bring into our lives. For some it might be a special pet that has become a part of the family, or simply companionship and comfort to those living alone or in isolation. Whatever the situation, the blessing brings the wider parish and faith community together in celebration of the special role that our pets play in our lives.

Those who are unable to attend can send a photograph of their pet which will be included on a notice board during the blessing.

The event will take place at 11am on Saturday, October 5th 2019 outside the Family Centre. All animals, great and small, are welcome!
