This coming Sunday, October 2 at Trinity Cathedral is the annual Blessing of the Animals to celebrate the Feast Day of St. Francis of Assisi. Please join us! 

We'll meet at 3pm in the courtyard with our favorite furry, feathered and finned friends and then process into the sanctuary for the individual blessings of the animals. All are welcome. For safety, please keep your pet(s) on a leash or in a cage. Also, please consider bringing a pet friendly donation for the Sacramento SPCA.
