A day for St. Francis—and our pets
Deacon Jim blessed the pets of the parish and neighborhood on Tuesday as pet owners brought their animals for the annual Blessing of the Pets. The ceremony is conducted in remembrance of St. Francis of Assisi, who was known for his love of all creatures, and it is on his feast day that the blessing takes place.
