The Feast of Saint Francis occurs each October and commemorates the life of Saint Francis, who was born in the 12th century and is the patron saint of all animals. Many churches celebrate and honor Saint Francis by offering services in which animals are blessed and prayed for. It is a day to give thanks to God for His wonderful works,
