St. Francis Day and the Blessing of the Animals

Over the last many years, St. John’s has observed the blessing of the animals associated with the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi.  His Feast this year falls on a Sunday, October 4.  While the Sunday Masses will reflect the Propers of the Day, the Office of Noonday Prayer will be observed to include the blessing of the animals – at 12 p.m.  All pets are welcome, but on leash or in a kennel.  Come for Mass, come back to see God’s creatures!
