Blessing of Animals

Bring your pets for a blessing at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, October 4, the feast of St. Francis of Assisi. St. Francis loved all of creation as a gift from God to be appreciated and cared for. All animals are welcome — furry, feathered, and otherwise. For the safety of all pets and their human friends, please be sure all critters are properly leashed or caged. We will meet at the grotto (or under the entrance canopy if it is raining).
