The Blessing of the Animals will take place this Sunday, October 4th during the morning Masses, and is open to furry, feathery, and scaly pets in all shapes and sizes. Animals are to be on leashes or in carriers. The Blessing of the Animals is celebrated each year in conjunction with the feast of St. Francis of Assisi, patron saint of animals. Refreshments for beasts and humans will be available in the Parish Center area.
