Blessing of the animals

the Inland Register

(From the October 18, 2012 edition of the Inland Register)

On Oct. 4, the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, Father Matthew Larsen, pastor of Assumption Parish, Spokane, invited the Assumption school families to bring their pets for a special blessing. All types of animals came: lizards, snakes, ducks, mice, turtles, and many dogs. The children gathered with their parents and pets as Father Larsen blessed each of the animals.
