All are welcome — FSPA sisters, affiliates, partners in mission, the public and their pets — to a pet blessing event on the front lawn of Villa St. Joseph, Sunday, Oct. 2, at 1:30 p.m. Pets can receive a blessing from Father Conrad during the event. The celebration of pets, in honor of the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, will be held in conjunction with the Coulee Region Humane Society.
