Blessing of the Animals at 10 AM Service
October 6 @ 10:00 am - 11:15 am
Bring your furried, scaled, or finned pet to our ten o’clock for a blessing in honor of the feast of St. Francis of Assisi, beloved patron saint of animals.
A friar who lived in the 12th and 13th centuries, St. Francis is the patron saint of animals because he was known to love all creatures and allegedly even preached to the birds!
