About St. Francis Pet Blessing Event

Connecticut Korean Presbyterian Church is thrilled to announce our annual St. Francis Pet Blessing event, held at the beautiful New Haven Animal Shelter. This pet-friendly gathering aims to celebrate the deep bond and love between pets and their human companions. Join us for a day filled with joy, blessings, and community spirit!

The Significance of Pet Blessing

As animal lovers and faithful believers, we understand the importance of acknowledging the many ways in which our beloved pets enrich our lives. St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals, holds a special place in our hearts. The tradition of pet blessings dates back to when St. Francis demonstrated his deep empathy and compassion for animals.

During the St. Francis Pet Blessing event, pets of all shapes and sizes, from playful dogs to cuddly cats and even smaller critters, are welcomed with open arms. This unique event celebrates the spirituality and love that pets bring into our lives, embracing them as valued members of our families and community.

Community and Society - Faith and Beliefs

At Connecticut Korean Presbyterian Church, we are committed to fostering a strong sense of community rooted in our shared faith and beliefs. Our dedication extends beyond our human congregation to include the well-being and happiness of the animals in our lives.

St. Francis Pet Blessing is just one of the many ways we demonstrate our devotion to animals and highlight the values of compassion, kindness, and respect, as taught by our faith. We invite everyone, irrespective of religious affiliation, to join us in celebrating this special event.
