St. Francis of Assisi, known as the patron saint of animals, is the inspiration for the annual Blessing of the Animals hosted by Gethsemane Episcopal Church on the Proctorsville Green.  Bring your pet on Saturday October 4 to this gentle event that surrounds animals with love and protection.  Reverend Todd McKee and other participating clergy will respectfully bless each and every furry, feathered and finned critter in attendance, whether four-footed or swimming in a fishbowl.  Come ye cats and dogs, ye bunnies and lizards, ye birds and lambs to the Proctorsville Green at 1:00, rain or shine.  Pet owners should be sure to have their dogs leashed and cats in carriers.
