Despite raining cats and dogs just minutes earlier, inclement weather failed to keep a Blessing of the Animals from proceeding as scheduled Oct. 6 at St. John the Evangelist Church in Greece. The 10 a.m. ceremony was officiated by Deacon Ed Knauf, parish deacon. It took place in conjunction with the Oct. 4 feast day of St. Francis of Assisi, patron saint of animals and the environment.
