  • In honor of the traditional celebration of St Francis of Assisi, who was known for his kindness to animals and all creatures of the earth, Trinity Episcopal Church of St James held a special ceremony Oct. 6 called the Blessing of the Animals. Father Steve Barber, vicar of the church, presented blessings to the pets of parishioners, friends and guests. A $100 donation from the Episcopal Church Women was given to the Tri-County Humane Society in honor of the day, and donations from church members were also given. Jane and Sally Cape made special treats for the animals. The ceremony was held on the west lawn of the church. It is an annual event for Trinity and most Episcopal churches in the Missouri Diocese.
