A Celebration of Caring for Our Planet, People and Animals

10 am to 3 pm

Celebrate St. Francis and his care for all creation – our planet, people and animals. It will be a day filled with fun family activities, face painting, food, eco-friendly products and resources, vendors, dog demonstrations, animal rescues, and a dog costume contest.

The Franciscan tradition of Blessing of the Animals will take place at 10:30 am and 1:30 pm.

The Parish Social Outreach ministry will be collecting produce, canned goods, and toiletries for those in need.

Pet food collections will go to the San Diego Humane Society.
