Blessing of the Animals

I don't have pictures to share, though if I did, you would enjoy them...unless you are not an animal person, then you would ignore this post.

Once a year, in celebration of St. Francis of Asissi, we have the blessing of the animals at church and boy, the unpredictability, even more than with young children, just makes for a fun and happy service.

While dogs are by far the most common, there have been cats, birds, hamsters, I believe a guinea pig and others. For those that can't, or prefer not to, bring their pet, a photograph comes,along with a a story...

It's just a fun thing!
