Blessing of the animals

Blessing of the Animals 2017

In honor of the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, the students brought their pets to school to receive a special blessing!  Gathered together for flag raising, Father Bong said a special blessing for the pets, followed by circling around to visit all the pets in the courtyard, and sprinkling them with Holy Water!  For students who couldn’t bring their pet to school, they brought photographs, and some brought their favorite stuffed animals.  This long-term event at St. Anthony School is a beloved tradition of the school!
