Worship Service

The long awaited Blessing of the Animals event took place Sunday to an overflow crowd who enjoyed singing the praises of St. Francis of Assisi and the animals with Mark Sumner, Nancy Munn and Richard Fey. Rev. Dr. John Buehrens presided over an enthusiastic bunch of different species including canines who were the most well-behaved on record, one demure feline belonging to Ann Rovere, and a large number of Homo sapiens animal lovers who were very engaged and welcoming.

Thanks to all who made this a memorable event, esp Kathleen Slobin who brought her pictures from Africa, and shown is one of them "Mountain gorilla and her twins."
