OPLS celebrates the Feast Day with Blessing of the Animals

Our Lady of Prompt Succor recently celebrated the Feast Day of St. Francis of Assisi with the Blessing of the Animals. Dozens of dogs, tanks of turtles, snakes, birds, pigs, rabbits, and even Bearded Dragons joined Our Lady of Prompt Succor School students and their families inside the gym for the annual Blessing of the Animals on Oct. 3. The annual event is held each autumn in remembrance of St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals and environment, whose feast day is celebrated October 4.
