In The Schools: Valle Blesses The Pets


Valle Catholic Schools two weeks ago conducted the annual blessing of pets, to coincide with the Feast of St. Francis Assisi on Oct. 4. The feast commemorates the life of St. Francis, who was born in the 12th Century A.D. He is known as the Catholic Church’s patron saint of animals and the environment, expressed in his Canticle of Creatures. (COURTESY PHOTO FROM VALLE CATHOLIC SCHOOLS/Special to the Herald)
