“All Creatures Great and Small”
Animals gathered with their responsible humans on Saturday, Oct. 3, for a Blessing of the Animals at PEACE Lutheran Church in Grass Valley. The event commemorated the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, who believed all of creation mirrors the Divine; St. Francis’ feast day is Oct. 4.
