Did you know that today, 4 October, is known and recognised by many in the Catholic Church as the “Feast of St Francis of Assisi” and is celebrated each year? It is a popular day for pets to be ‘blessed’.

This feast day commemorates the life of St Francis, who was born in the 12th century and is the Catholic Church’s patron saint of animals and the environment.
