Grace Cathedral | 1100 California Street. San Francisco, CA
Submitted by the Event Organizer
Celebrate the Feast of St. Francis with the blessings of your pets on the plaza following the 8:30 am, 11 am and 6 pm services on October 3.
Though he was born into wealth, St. Francis rejected and gave up this life upon a pilgrimage to Rome, becoming a friar and living a life of poverty. In fact, the Franciscans — a religious order of his founding — concentrate on caring for the poor. Today, St. Francis is mostly associated with animals, due to his love of the environment and all creatures, with one account claiming he even preached to the birds.
