2023 Blessing of the Animals – Sunday, October 8th

“In a culture where we use things and throw them away, Francis calls us to see humans and animals as creatures of God.”

We will be in the Saint Francis Garden at Saint Miriam Parish and all creatures Great and Small are welcome!

Also, on Sunday, October 8th:

St. Francis Feast Day will be honored at all three masses  – (7:30am Early Mass; 9:30am Family Mass; and 11:00am Morning Mass). We will also be praying the Franciscan Rosary at our 8:30am Rosary Devotional.
