Blessing of the Animals and Dog Wash
On Sunday, Oct. 6, the school community participated in the annual Blessing of the Animals in honor of the feast day of St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals.
The Rev. Todd FitzGerald and the Rev. Adam Varner '03, school chaplains, offered pet blessings on The Hill for all creatures, great and small.
The event included a dog wash benefitting Blue Dog Rescue. Special
thanks go to the volunteer pet washers, who raised approximately $230 for the Austin-based rescue organization.
