Blessing of the Animals - Saturday October 5, 10:00 am

All things bright and beautiful, all creatures great and small;
All things wise and wonderful, the Lord God made them all.

St. James' will continue our tradition of blessing the animals in the St. Francis garden on Saturday, October 5 at 10:00 am.  Please join us with you pets for the blessing and refreshments.

Our garden statue of St. Francis shows Francis with a bird on his hand.  Legend about St. Francis says that once when he was traveling, he walked through a place filled with birds.  St Francis told his companions to wait while he preached to his sisters, the birds.  The birds surrounded him and not one flew away.  Our garden cat, Francis, can often be found lounging at St. Francis' feet.
