Epiphany School raises money for food kitchen through Blessing of the Animals

Epiphany School celebrated the Feast of Saint Francis with the Blessing of the Animals on Friday, October 2. This year was not like any other year. Students could not bring their four legged or feathered friends or invite their families and friends because of COVID-19. Instead, they brought their favorite stuffed animals. They also brought money to donate to Saint Francis Kitchen in Scranton which feeds the needy every day. Pictured alongside Father Andrew S. Hvozdovic is one of Epiphany School’s first graders dressed as Saint Francis. He collected $600 to send to Saint Francis Kitchen.
