|For a few years, I have been participating in the Ultimate Blogging Challenge. It is held four times a year. The challenge is to write a blog post every day for an entire month. So, today is the first day of the October challenge.
Today, Saint Martin in the Fields Episcopal Church in Grand Island, New York, held its annual pet blessing. Saint Francis, whose feast day is October 4th, is the patron saint of animals and ecology. Saint Francis of Assisi, Italy, who was born in the early 1180s, saw all living creatures as brothers and sisters under God. He preached to the birds and he blessed the animals.

Hi Alice! Great to see your beautiful photos once again. Looks like an awesome day at the blessings of the dogs.
That looks like so much fun! I bet the animals enjoyed it almost as much as the people! I wish we had something like that here. Can't wait for your next post in the challenge.
It looks like a fun time for all. I am sure the animals loved all the extra attention.
A wonderful day! I hope the preschool got the funding it needed while the furry children were being blessed.
Bless the animals, and the blogger.
