Pet Blessing at the Cathedral Celebrates St. Francis of Assisi

Celebrating the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, the Cathedral Parish of St. Patrick in Harrisburg welcomed all creatures great and small for a special pet blessing in honor of the patron saint of animals and ecology, and whose feast day is October 4. Dogs and cats, lovingly accompanied by their owners, lined the sidewalks outside of the Cathedral on October 1 for the blessing, administered by Father Joshua Brommer, pastor and rector, and a dog owner himself.
