- Feast of St. Francis of Assisi - Annual Blessing of the Animals
- 10/4/2023, 8:00 AM – 8:20 AM
- SHS Playground
This annual event is one of our students' favorites. If you have a pet or two that you can bring to our school and keep under your control by leash, pet carrier, or special arrangement, please bring them to the school on this day for a special blessing. We will have a blessing for all animals both present and those at home as we celebrate the life of St. Francis of Assisi. He cared not only for the animals but for all life. We celebrate this special man and the love he had for others through this special blessing. Parents, at the end of the ceremony, we need you to take the pets home.
