Members of the public and their pets are welcome to attend the annual service for the Blessing of the Animals to mark St Francis Day.
St Francis of Assisi is the patron saint of animals and the environment.

All animals are welcome, as long as they are in a cage or on a leash. Children are invited to bring their favourite soft toys for a special blessing.

This service is held in conjunction with the SPCA .The collection will be donated to the local branch of the SPCA.

There will also be the opportunity for owners to light a candle in memory of loved pets that have recently died.
