In honor of the feast day of St. Francis of Assisi, held each year on October 4, it is customary for people all over the world to bring their animals to churches (or Catholic school, in our case) for a special blessing. To honor St. Francis, patron of animals, please join us for a blessing of animals at 2:45 pm on Tuesday, October 4. Our resident chickens will be blessed, and parents are invited to bring family pets to be blessed as well. Students and teachers may also bring photos of their pets for the blessing. We will gather at 2:45 pm behind the Duchesne Building between the Martinez Memorial Garden and the chicken coop. All pets should be in a carrier or on a leash.
