Got The "Pet From Hell"?

Maybe a dose of that old-time religion will help.

Pet blessings take place on Saturday, October 3rd, after the 4:30 Mass in front of the church, at the Sheridan steps.

The church asks that all pets be on leashes or in carriers, and that you NOT bring your pet to Mass.

St. Mary of the Lake is located at 4200 N Sheridan, and parking is available.


  1. I highly recommend this, even if you're not Catholic. It's just good times.

  2. I'd bring Honey, but since she's trangendered I'm not sure if she would be accepted by the church. You may laugh, but seriously - she lifts her leg when she pees and likes to hump other dogs from behind. After years of shame and disappointment, I've learned to accept and love my transgendered dog.

    If loving your transgendered pet is wrong, I don't want to be right.

  3. A little background here, for those not of the Catholic persuasion: Blessings of animals, both farm and domestic, is a long-time custom among Catholics and some Protestants. It takes place on or about the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi (Oct.4), who was famous for his kindness to animals as well as his fellow people.
