Blessing of the Animals – October 2020

On October 4th, 2020, we continued our parish tradition of the Blessing of the Animals. This tradition honors St. Francis of Assisi, patron saint of animals.  The Blessing was attended by dogs, cats, a turtle, a lizard and their people. This year, we met in the parking lot so that we could socially distance. Masks were required for all humans.  To view pictures, click on the link below.
