Feast of Francis of Assisi

Each year to celebrate the feast of our co-patron, Francis of Assisi, it is traditional to bless all of Creation as Francis did in his Canticle of the Sun.
Our pet companions are given to us as a gift; it is our responsibility to care for them in many ways. One of the most special ways is to provide them with a blessing in our Creator’s name.
