Mercy Community hosts ‘Blessing of Pets,’ appeals pledges for Laudato Si’


For the Umatuna Si Yu’os

As the 70th Anniversary Year of the Sisters of Mercy draws to a close, the Mercy Community wants to celebrate the “Season of Creation” with a “Blessing of Pets” and other important events.

This will take place on October 1, Sunday at 1:30 p.m. at the Plaza de España adjacent to the Dulce Nombre de Maria Cathedral Basilica in Hagåtña.

In conjunction with the upcoming Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, pet owners are invited to bring their pets for a special blessing by Fr. Michael Jucutan, Vice Rector of the Cathedral. (Please maintain control of your pets and their needs at all times!)

In addition, we invite everyone to sign Pope Francis’ Laudato Si’ Pledge to support and take care of Mother Earth. Don’t miss this fun and important event!
