On Wednesday, Oct. 3rd, we celebrated the feast day of St. Francis of Assisi. St Francis was born in the 12th century and is the Catholic Church’s patron saint of animals and the environment. Our STB staff, friends and family gathered outside with their pets to receive a special “blessing of the animals” from Fr. Dolan.  This year we were surrounded by many dogs, a cat, rabbit, hermit crab, and even chickens! Take a look!
