Blessing of the Animals

In El Pueblo’s early days, a priest would bless livestock for health and productivity, benefiting the entire community. The practice continued when Olvera Street opened in 1930, and family pets joined the farm animals. Whether they walk, crawl, slither or fly, all animals (and people!) are welcome to receive a blessing from Archbishop Jose Gomez. Blessing from 2:00 – 3:00 p.m Sponsor: El Pueblo Historical Monument & Olvera Street Merchants
