Animal lovers, near and far, participated in the Blessing of Animals

Approximately 30 animal lovers and their pets participated in a Blessing of Animals ritual on Sunday, October 5, at Washington Park, Little Falls.  Following a short service, each animal present was individually blessed and refreshments were served for the animals and their companions. Hosted by the Franciscan Sisters of Little Falls and the Episcopal Church of Our Saviour, Little Falls, this event is held each year in honor of Saint Francis of Assisi, patron saint of animals and of ecology.

The Franciscan Sisters of Little Falls, Minnesota, is a community of Catholic women religious who follow the Gospel of Jesus Christ, walking in the footsteps of Saints Francis and Clare of Assisi. We believe that the living of a poor, simple and prayerful community life is a ministry of presence and witness. Our doors are open to the public to celebrate Mass in Sacred Heart Chapel and to benefit from the St. Francis Music Center and St. Francis Health & Recreation Center. We welcome those who wish to join us as sisters, associates, volunteers, transfer sisters, friends and donors.
