The Blessing of the Animals

Yesterday, we had our annual belated St. Francis Day Blessing of the Animals. I was out last week at Diocesan Convention in Chamberlain, SD, so we missed the actual feast day of St. Francis. So we had it yesterday instead.

We were going to at first have it outside, but they were threatening 2 to 4 inches of snow. Then I decided to have it in the main church area, but it is temporarily torn up due to new carpeting being put in (I'll have before and after pictures later on that).

So it ended up in the church basement undercroft as a last resort. As you can see, it was mostly dogs this year, although we did have a rabbit from Minnesota show up (which I forgot to take a picture of). A good time was had by all, especially the dogs, since they got blessings and treats.
