Bring Fido and Fluffy to Providence Marianwood to be blessed by a priest Wednesday morning.

To celebrate the feast day of St. Francis of Assisi, the pets of Providence Marianwood residents — plus animals owned by staff members, volunteers, family members and the public — can participate in a blessing led by the Rev. Fred Jessett.

The blessing is scheduled for 10:45 a.m. at Providence Marianwood, 3725 Providence Point Drive S.E. Call 391-2895 to learn more.

St. Francis, a 12th and 13th-century priest, is the patron saint of animals.
