St. Francis Day Blessing of the Animals
On October 12, 2011
About 20 people and their furry friends from Grace Church and our surrounding community came together for a Blessing of the Animals at Grace Episcopal Church on Saturday, Oct. 8. The special service was led by The Rev. D. Rebecca Dinovo in celebration of St. Francis of Assisi, who is one of the most celebrated religious figures in history. St. Francis founded the men’s Franciscan Order, the women’s Order of St. Clare, and the lay Third Order of Saint Francis. He is perhaps most famous for his great love of animals and the environment.
