We will offer a blessing of the animals in chapel at 10:40 am on Friday, October 6 in Hoversten Chapel. You are invited to bring your pet or emotional support or service animal to chapel for a blessing or send a photo to Janice Dames at by October 4 to have your pet featured in a chapel slideshow. World Animal Day is celebrated each year on October 4. On this day, animal life in all its forms is celebrated. The date was originally chosen because it is the feast day of St. Francis of Assisi, a nature lover and patron saint of animals and the environment.
