The free “Blessing of the Pets” is a tradition that follows in St. Francis’ footsteps as a day to honor the special love humans have for animals. It is a day set aside to have pets “blessed” as people of all ages reflect on the gift of companionship they provide throughout everyone’s lives.

For more information, call the school at 842-1282.
