Father Phillips to bless the animals on the Animal Refuge League in Larger Portland on October 4

Portland – Fr. Lou Phillips, Pastor of St. Anthony of Padua Parish in Windham, Westbrook and Gorham, Arthur P. of Larger Portland. Girard will bless the animals on Tuesday, October 4, on the Animal Refuge League at Adoption Middle (217 Touchdown Street in Westbrook). The particular occasion at 10:30 am is in honor of the feast day of St. Francis of Assisi, who was recognized for his love for all of God’s creatures.

“We had been seeking to do a special, non-traditional blessing of pets this 12 months. We reached out to the animal shelter, they usually had been very receptive to the thought,” mentioned Fr. Lu. “We considered these potential adoptable pets. The animals are probably the most in want of blessings.”

The Animal Refuge League of Larger Portland is a non-profit animal shelter that serves greater than 4,000 homeless and displaced animals yearly. The shelter goals to nurture the connection between individuals and pets to advance animal welfare and enhance the standard of life in our communities.
