The Feast of St. Francis of Assisi is October 4th. St. Francis was so close to nature that it was said he could talk with the animals. He gave all he had to help the poor. In keeping with the spirit of St. Francis, a Blessing of the Animals will be held Saturday, October 3rd at 10:00 a.m. at the St. Francis Center, 520 E. Mary Street.
Please bring your feathered, furry, hairy or scaly pets in a secure carrier or on a leash. Even if you don’t have a pet, please join us for the celebration!
