Despite rain, over 30 people turned out with their beloved pets on Sunday, October 6, 2013 for the Annual Pet Blessing, held each year on the first Sunday of October in honor of St. Francis of Assisi. The event took place in Fay Hall, rather than the parish front lawn, but it was a terrific event. After prayers, a reading, and a renewal of our covenant with our pets, Fr. Jesse blessed each dog and cat independently.
