MENDOTA – In celebration of Saint Francis of Assisi, who was known for his love of animals, OSF Saint Paul Medical Center in Mendota will be hosting a special blessing just for pets. The blessing of animals will take place on Friday between 10 and 11 AM in the OSF Saint Paul Serenity Garden located on the west side of the hospital. They ask that you wear a mask and bring your pet on a leash or in a carrier.  Deacon George Schramm will bless each of your pets.
