Episcopal Pets

Episcopal Pups and Random Facts

Here, as promised, are some of the 96 photos I took for the Feast of St. Francis at St. Michael's today. The actual feast day was Thursday, but the parish always transfers it to the nearest Sunday, and invites us to bring in our pets to be blessed.

The liturgy began outside in front of the church. Dog owners, the choir and others staked out chairs and benches.

It's a very doggy parish.

The only cat I saw receives his blessing.
