St. Francis School Celebrates Annual “Blessing of the Pets”

Festivities started with an introduction from Head of the School, Ms. Barbara Porter. The litany was led by 8th grade students. To end the festivities, the pets were all blessed by Reverend Billy Tweedie, and our own teacher, Mr. Don Hale, dressed up as St. Francis. Students were invited to bring their cats, dogs, fish, hamsters, and other small pets to the blessing. There was even a snake present for the blessing! This was a wonderful event for our community of students, faculty, parents, and friends.
