About the Event
St. Francis of Assisi, the founder of the Franciscan order, experienced kinship with all of creation, including animals. Throughout the world, the Feast of St. Francis is commemorated by blessing of the animals ceremonies.
It is also Catholic Family Life Week. So we will be blessing all manner of families and pets from 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM at the entry near the St. Francis statue. The event is free. Donations are gladly accepted HERE.
