Blessing of the Animals
San Diego Humane Society and St. Paul's Episcopal Cathedral hosted a Blessing of the Animals to celebrate the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, patron saint of animals and ecology.
Adoptable animals were blessed by The Very Reverend Penny Bridges, Dean of St. Paul’s Episcopal Cathedral in San Diego.
St. Francis of Assisi is remembered around the world on Oct. 4. The service included holy water and a verbal blessing of our four-legged precious animals.
