Event Details

Join friends and neighbors in the parish courtyard for our annual blessing of the animals. You are welcome to bring your leashed pet or keep your pet in a carrier. We welcome all pets: furry, scaly, and feathery, as well as stuffed animals or pictures of your pet!

This special event is free and open to ALL members of the community of any religious affiliation. On this day, we celebrate the Feast Day of Saint Francis of Assisi, patron saint of animals, our church, and the City of San Francisco. All of God’s creatures are welcome. Pet owners can show their appreciation for their pets, make new friends, and share the company of other animals and their owners. You can also help us make treats for the animals at the San Francisco Animal Care Control (ACC). St. Francis’ clergy will bestow individual blessings on every animal in attendance.

The event is outside in our parish courtyard at 11:30AM. If you’d like, please join us with your pet at the 10:00AM service.

St. Francis’ Church is close to the Ocean Ave & Junipero Serra MUNI Stop and has plenty of free street parking.
