Feast of St. Francis of Assisi

St-Francis-Assisi

October 4th is the feast day for Saint Francis of Assisi. He was a Catholic deacon and the founder of the Order of Friars Minor, more commonly known as the Franciscans. Every year in celebration of his feast day, we have a blessing for the animals of the parish. This year, the blessing will take place on October 4th at 1:00pm on the field next to the school. Bring your dog, cat, bird, fish, or pet orangutan!
