Eighteenth Sunday After Pentecost: Episcopal Network for Animal Welfare

September 30, 2012
Thursday, October 4, is the Feast Day of Francis of Assisi. Saint Francis was an eleventh-century Italian friar who founded the Franciscan Order for men and the Order of Saint Clare for women, and he is also widely known for his love of nature and animals. Because of his dedication and ministry to all living creatures, many congregations hold pet-blessing ceremonies each year on or around October 4, to commemorate St. Francis Day.
