Annually, to celebrate the feast day of St. Francis of Assisi, we host a Pet Blessing for all of our students and their families. This year, with Covid protocols in place, we modified our prayer service to be able to continue you this much-loved tradition. Grades gathered in smaller groups respecting appropriate spacing and time restrictions, instead of as an entire school community. Guests weren’t able to join us - the human or animal kind- but we held pictures of our pets in our hands or in our minds to ask for God’s blessing on them, as well as us as the caretakers of God’s creation. Thank you to Fr. Bill and Fr. Paul for making this prayer service possible again this year!
