Elementary Religion Classes Celebrate St. Francis' Feast Day with Blessing of Animals

In celebration of the feast day of St. Francis, ICCS 1st and 3rd grade religion classes participated in a Blessing of the Animals on Thursday, Oct. 8. They discussed God's gifts of creation, St. Francis as model of care for creation, and his love for the poor. They thanked God for the comfort and happiness our furry friends bring us, called to mind those children who live in places that have a need for peace and playfulness, and asked God's blessing on them and us.
