SJPDS students, families and their pets are invited for a special animal blessing in honor of the Feast of St. Francis. Bring your fine, feathered or furry friends (on leashes or in cages please) for a meet and greet and prayers in celebration of all of God’s creatures. Have an anxious animal or one with poor party manners? Leave them at home and bring their photograph instead. A favorite stuffed animal is welcome for a blessing also.
