St. Mary Parish hosted a Blessing of the Animals ceremony and ice cream social on Sunday afternoon in the St. Mary School parking lot.
The ceremony was a three-part celebration of St. Francis of Assisi and included a prayer for parishioners who brought their pets — or photos of them. The gathering also served as a charity event, with parishioners donating books and pajamas for needy children. Those collections will go to Bridgeport’s chapter of Pajama Program.
