Blessed be the canines

Posted: Thursday, Oct 3rd, 2013

The Rev. Rod Farke, pastor of St. Thomas More Catholic Church in Brookings, says a prayer for a dog brought out Wednesday evening for a traditional blessing of the animals.

About 20 canines, accompanied by their owners, showed up for a service tied to the feast day Friday of St. Francis of Assisi, patron saint of animals.

Perhaps Francis was looking out for his furry, four-footed friends, as the rains left the area, leaving a clear evening for the outdoor ceremony.
