Blessing of the Animals 2019

HSHS Sacred Heart Hospital will host its annual “Blessing of the Animals” event on Sunday, September 29.

All pets must be leashed or under control and owners must provide clean up. The events are free and open to the public.

St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of Sacred Heart and St. Joseph’s hospitals, was a man who spent his life caring for the poor, the under-served and the downtrodden. His love of all God’s creatures also extended to animals. It is in honor of this love and in the spirit of this great saint that the hospitals are offering this unique, ecumenical event.

This same event will be held in the Healing Garden, outside of the main entrance at HSHS St. Joseph's Hospital in Chippewa Falls (2661 Co. Highway I). Also held on September 29, 2019 from 1:00 PM - 1:30 PM.


The hospital’s Healing Garden outside of the main entrance at 900 West Clairemont Ave., Eau Claire
