The Blessing of the Animals is scheduled for 10 a.m. Saturday, Sept 28. The blessing will be held on the grounds of the St. Francis Center at 520 E. Mary Street. The St. Francis Center invites pet parents to being their special furry friends for a Blessing of the Animals, in recognition of the Feast of Assisi, the patron saint of animals. Fr. Ray Levreault, pastor of St. John's Catholic Church, will perform the blessing. Pets of all kinds are welcome, but please be sure to have your pet in a secure carrier or on a leash. If you can't bring your pet, you may bring a picture to be blessed.
