Join us for the annual Blessing of the Animals 2017!

8:30am till 12:30pm - Thorndon Farmers' Market (Hill Street, next to the Cathedral). Many of the wonderful stall holders will be bringing their own animals along for the day to enjoy the atmosphere.

9:30am - Market Dog Competition at Thorndon Farmers Market. Prizes for various categories including best dressed, best trick, etc.

10:00am till 10:45am - Blessing of the Animals in the Cathedral. Come along and have your animals blessed in honour of World Animal Day and St Francis of Assisi day.

11:00am - Outside group photo (inside if wet)

Please note: There will be a lot of animals, people and noise at this Blessing. If your animal is not comfortable in this type of situation, you may decide it is best to leave your animal at home. Instead, please bring a photo of your pet to have blessed.
