Thursday, October 4, is the feast of St. Francis. Many of the stories that surround the life of St. Francis deal with his love for animals. On this feast day, many schools and parishes have a “Blessing of Pets”.
St. Catherine of Siena American National Catholic Church and Trinity Episcopal Church will hold a joint annual Blessing of the Animals, officiated by Rev. Anne Kelsey and Fr. Phillip Lichtenwalter at 5pm on Saturday, October 6, 2012 in the Trinity Courtyard located at the corner of Euclid and Maryland 63108
