Local school celebrates ÔBlessing of the AnimalsÕ
Submitted By Cici Susbilla
St. John the Baptist School celebrated the blessing of animals in honor of the patron saint of animals, St. Francis of Assisi. Families, students and staff brought live and stuffed animals to be blessed by Fr. Ritche Bueza (parish pastor) during a morning assembly on October 4. At St. John the Baptist School, we believe every creature is important. Each year our students enjoy the opportunity to take their pets to school on this special day.
St. John the Baptist School is located at 360 S. Abel Street in Milpitas. For more information, visit www.sjbs.org.
