Blessing of the Animals

Each year the Episcopal Church of St. Paul and St. James blesses any of the little critters who are brought for a blessing. It was on October 4 which is usually close to St. Francis of Assisi Day.

Getting blessed works up a thirst!

    I'm always amazed by the artistic stoles American clergy come up with.

    Do you really have dog-watering fountains there? Never seen that. Great idea.
