Blessing of the Animals
In honor of the feast day of St. Francis of Assisi, OLC will offer a blessing for pets on Sunday, October 2d at 3:00 pm at the church. St. Francis of Assisi, patron saint of animals and ecology, could be viewed as the original Earth Day advocate. St. Francis’ devotion to God was expressed through his love for all of God’s creation. St. Francis cared for the poor and sick, he preached sermons to animals, and praised all creatures as brothers and sisters under God. We hope you will join us on this special day. Please call the rectory at 201-434-0798 with any questions.
