Blessing of the Animals

As your congregation prepares to celebrate the Feast of St. Francis with a blessing of the animals and prayers for creation, CLWR has designed resources for you to integrate into your service. We encourage you to lift up animals, and those who care for them, here in Canada and around the world. Consider including in your prayers the many animals gifted to families through Gifts from the Heart and CLWR programs and the opportunities these animals provide to their families. Please click on the links below to download PDFs of the resources: 

 As CLWR continues to grow our resource collection, we would love to hear suggestions and insight from you. Please feel free to contact Heidi Van Schaik, Church Relations Manager at with ideas and feedback.
