Every year in many parts of the world, there is an event called The Blessing of the Animals, to coincide with the feast of St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals. Animals of all kinds are brought to local churches and shelters to be blessed, in honor of St. Francis, who loved all living things, and was very kind to animals.
