On Thursday, October 4th in celebration of the feast of St. Francis, a blessing of animals will be held at 2:30 pm. All students are invited to bring their pet(s), a pictorial likeness of it or a stuffed animal. Our celebration will include prayers, procession, song, and the blessing. All are invited to attend. Weather permitting, the celebration will be held in the field behind the school. In the event of rain, the location will be transferred to the gym. Small, caged animals may be able to be dropped off with your student in the morning (arrangements should be made with the classroom teacher). Larger animals should arrive at 2:30 pm.
