The Feast of St. Francis of Assisi commemorates the life of the patron saint of animals and the environment. A month-long Season of Creation ended on October 4, the Feast of St. Francis. In remembrance of his love for all creatures, there is a blessing of the animals on his feast day. Parishioners of ODS were led in prayer by Father Peter to bless the animals that mean so much to us.

The fair highlighted various groups and activities at ODS. Hopefully you found one of interest that you would like to join. Your help is always needed a appreciated.
