Blessing of the Hounds

Every year, Father Michael or Father Brian with the Santa Inés Mission hosts our Blessing of the Hounds activity on the Santa Inés Mission grounds. It’s a special time for all of us to witness our Hounds being blessed. Father Michael and Father Brian are very pleased to bless our Hounds as well. The grounds of the Mission is a place of peace and serenity for all of us to reflect on the love our Hounds give us daily. We are truly blessed by each hound that enters our lives.

If you wish for your Hounds to be blessed at the Solvang Greyhound Fest, please visit our activity pages for the scheduled day and time, usually on Friday. Below are some photos of past Blessings conducted on the Mission grounds (click to enlarge).
