On the morning of
October 17th, friends of our community brought their
animal companions with them to thank the Lord for the
gift that they have been in their lives. Fr.
Gregory-David, our Sub-prior, had the honor of
blessing pets in honor of St. Francis of Assisi (whose
feast was celebrated earlier this month). The
cool, sunny day was a great opportunity for our
friends and those who usually come to the monastery
for the Liturgy to bring their pets and ask for the
Lordís protection and blessing upon them.
