  • Animals can be blessed in services during the first week of October to celebrate the saint's day of the patron saint of animals, Saint Francis of Assisi

St Andrews in Los Boliches will be holding an animal blessing service on Wednesday 4 October at 6pm while St George’s Church in Malaga and Vélez-Málaga will be holding similar services over the first weekend in October.

In Malaga the service will take place on Saturday 7 October at 12pm. Vélez-Málaga’s service will be taking place at St George’s church at Calle Linares 7, at 10.30am. All animals are welcome, be they furry, fluffy, feathered or scaled!

Some people may choose to bring photos of their pets if preferred.

The services are a celebration of creation and animals - the patron saint of animals is Saint Francis of Assisi whose saint’s day is 4 October.
