Every year on the weekend closest to the Feast of  St. Francis of Assisi, St. Luke’s Episcopal  Church in Chester holds a blessing of the animals. This year the feast  day was  Wednesday Oct. 4 and so on the warm, sunny Saturday and Sunday the Rev. Heidi Edson welcomed any animal on the lawn of the church for a blessing. A number of animals, mostly dogs, took part.
