We were pleased to learn that 60 percent of CatholicMatch members own a pet, and because of this finding, were planning a special photo gallery in honor of St. Francis of Assisis upcoming feast day. But we need your help!
Send us a picture of your Catholic pet and deck him or her out to look Catholic. Be creative! Consider creating a nuns habit, a brothers robe or a Roman collar for your furry friend. Surround your parakeet with holy cards or medals. Adorn your canine like a beloved saint or dress your feline like a pontiff. (Pope Benedict is well known for his love of cats, after all.) Render your rabbit angelic with a halo and wings. Whatever you do, the picture must have some Catholic element or angle.
Take a clear picture with good lighting. Email your picture to firstname.lastname@example.org, using the subject line My Catholic pet, by Sept. 15. Be sure to note your member number in the text of the email.
For an added incentive, well be giving special prizes to the three most viewed pets in our online gallery. Its time to make your furry friend famous!
This is not intended to be sacrilegious, but rather, to celebrate the special bond we share with our pets in a fun, lighthearted way. Surely your pets are Catholic too, right?
We cant wait to see your photos!
