Blessing of the Animals
The Rev. NANCY GALLAGHER gives a prayer to a dog named during a Blessing of the Animals service at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg on Sunday, Oct. 2, 2106. The annual event which is sponsored by the Humane Society is held each year in conjunction with St. Francis Day. St. Francis of Assisi, patron saint of animals and ecology, was born in Italy around 1181 or 1182.
