Blessing of the Animals – Photos Requested

submitted by

On Friday, October 1, Campus Ministry will have a Blessing of the Animals service in Hoversten Chapel at 10:40 am as we celebrate St. Francis of Assisi, Patron Saint of Animals. Our service will include a lively blessing ritual of animals and pets to honor St. Francis’ devotion to all God’s creatures.

We invite students, staff, and faculty to bring their animals for a blessing that morning, but we would also like to have a slideshow of some of our dear animal friends. If you have an animal friend or pet that you would like to have in the slideshow, please send a photo to Janice Dames at by Wednesday, September 29.
