Blessing of the animals

Each year, at the beginning of October, there are celebrations of the feast of St Francis of Assisi as part of World Animal Week.  St Francis is the Patron Saint of Animals and Ecology.

Today was our annual blessing service at the ‘Cardboard Cathedral’ – the Transitional Cathedral in Christchurch.

Izzy and her friend Bergie attended.  It gives me comfort to know that Izzy has been blessed officially.
