St. Francis Day Blessings

November 1, 2017

Nearly 50 animals received their blessing at the annual Blessing of the Animals in honor of St. Francis of Assisi.  Only one dog missed her blessing, having run away just before the service began.  Thankfully, that story ended happily: Tina received her blessing when she was recovered from the LaMarche neighborhood four days later!

This annual event is a reminder that we are stewards of God's creation.  Our pets, along with all creatures, are a vital part of the life of the world, and a blessing to our lives.
