St. Francis of Assisi loved animals. At St. Mary's we honored St. Francis on his Feast Day October 4th. Mrs. Feagan has been doing this for years. She puts out a statue of St. Francis in the hall and tells the kids they can bring in a realistic stuffed animal to place by the statue. You have to look hard at the photo to find St. Francis who is surrounded by the animals he loved and are loved by those who put them there. Mrs. Feagan says, the little Pre-K kids and Kindergartners get a "charge" out of it. We take them home at the end of the day. Her 4th grade students are also memorizing St. Francis' prayer as part of their religion grade.
