Blessing of the Animals

On October 4, people all over the world celebrated the feast day of the Patron Saint of Animals, Saint Francis of Assisi. It's customary that in remembrance of St. Francis of Assisi's love for all creatures, animals are led to churches for a special ceremony called the “Blessing of the Animals.”  Saint John's celebrated on Friday with Fr. Mike blessing the animals in our drop-off line. It was a great way to start the day!
