Blessing of the Animals

A “Blessing of the Animals” service was held Saturday in front of St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church. The blessing was part of the feast of St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals. At the service are, from left, the Rev. Joachim Studwell, Melissa Homolik, who is holding her 12-year-old dog, Coco, and Homolik’s granddaughter, Vaida Homolik.
