Blessing the animals

Epiphany School celebrated the Feast of Saint Francis on Friday. Saint Francis is the patron saint of animals and of the poor. He generously cared for the animals and the poor. On Friday, the students of Epiphany School and their families and friends gathered for the blessing of the animals. Father Andrew began the afternoon with a short prayer and then blessed each animal. One of the first grade students was dressed as Saint Francis and collected $345.66 for Saint Francis Kitchen in Scranton.
