Blessing of the Animals - Wellington
Show your love and appreciation for your pet and all animals, great and small, by joining us at SPCA’s annual Blessing of the Animals ceremony.
Unite with families, canines, and other creatures great and small, for the special opportunity to have your pets blessed.
This is a non-denominational service celebrating St. Francis of Assisi and is the one day animals are allowed into the church.
All pets are welcome – whether it is dogs, horses and donkeys on leads, cats in carriers, or birds and other small critters in cages. Candles can also be lit in memory of animals that have passed.
This event is free and open to all ages.
Please note: There will be a lot of animals, people and noise at this blessing. If your animal is not comfortable in this type of situation you may decide it is best to leave them at home. Instead, please bring a photo of your pet to have blessed.
Date: Saturday 1 October
Location: Wellington Cathedral of St Paul
