Blessing of the Animals will be 7:30-8:30 a.m. Oct. 4, at St. Anne Catholic Church, 2000 Kay Circle, near the flagpole in the parking lot. The public is invited to bring their pets, except snakes, to receive a special blessing by the Rev. Jeremiah McCarthy and the Rev. Jacob Almeter. The tradition is held in remembrance of St. Francis of Assisi's love for all creatures.
