Blessing of the Pets at ULM Oct. 4
University of Louisiana at Monroe pets could get the leg up on their animal competition Tuesday, Oct. 4 at 5 p.m. in Bayou Park as the ULM Catholic Campus Ministry holds the annual Blessing of the Pets.
Regardless of religious affiliation, all faculty, staff and students may bring their pets by for a special blessing, officiated by the Rev. Job Edathinatt.
The custom is connected with St. Francis of Assisi's feast day and reputation as the patron saint of animals.
