The celebration of blessings holds a privileged place among all the sacramentals instituted by the Church for the pastoral benefit of the people of God. Various blessings lead the faithful to praise God and prepare them for the fruitful reception of the sacraments. By celebrating a blessing the faithful can also sanctify various situations and events in their lives.
Please contact the parish office or speak to the pastor directly to arrange for various blessings, e.g. blessing of a new home, blessing of a new car (or other means of transportation), blessing of religious articles, blessing of Easter food, blessing of animals (usually on or near the feast of St. Francis of Assisi), blessing of a grave headstone/marker, blessing on the anniversary of marriage, blessing on the occasion of a birthday, etc.
