On Sunday, October 6, 2019, we celebrated St. Francis of Assisi (October 4) and his love for all creatures with the Blessing of the Animals. Dogs, lizards, hermit crabs, ducks and their people, gathered together in front of the Church to receive the Blessing by Deacon Frank. Each pet present received a prayer card and medal of St. Francis. The short prayer service was followed by a raffle. All pets who were present were entered in the raffle. A pet walk followed. It was a wonderful celebration of St. Francis, his love of animals and our parish family, including their beloved pets.
