On Friday, October 4th, the Church will celebrate the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi. St. Francis founded the Franciscan Order in the early 13th Century with the charism (or spiritual gift) of serving the poor. St. Francis is well known for his great love for all of God’s creation, especially animals.
As is tradition on this day, we will offer the Blessing of Animals and Pets. This blessing will take place on Friday, Oct. 4th, at 4 PM under the front entrance of the Church. All are welcome to join us!
