Through his example, St. Francis reminds us that we are called to bring about justice and peace in our world, to end violence and war, poverty and oppression and to protect our fragile planet.
Pet owners everywhere celebrate the feast of St. Francis of Assisi on October 4 by having their pets blessed in the spirit of this patron saint of animals and ecology.  Campus Ministry and the Rev. Jennifer Veninga will be hosting a time for your pet to be Blessed.  Please make sure that your pet is controlled and dogs must be leashed.
