In honor of St. Francis, once again we celebrate the Blessing of the Animals and give thanks for ALL God’s creatures, especially his four-legged, winged and scaly ones! The presence of animals in our lives is a blessing. They often help us through very trying times and ask nothing in return except our love and care. This year the celebration will take place on Sunday, October 10 at noon in the amphitheater next to the churchyard. All pets are welcome on a leash or in a proper carrier…photos will be taken and uploaded to our website and Facebook page, and each pet will receive a St. Francis Protect My Pet medal! Spread the word….and join us!!
