Today, St. Timothy's held it's annual Blessing of the Animals service in the front yard of the church.  The Rev. Rebecca Nickel blessed over a dozen dogs and a couple of cats belonging to parishioners and friends.  This custom is conducted to honor St. Francis of Assisi's great love for all creatures.
"All things bright and beautiful, all creatures great and small;
All things wise and wonderful, the Lord God made them all."
