The Feast of Saint Francis in NYC
Dancing groups and the Festival choir performed before and during the mass. At the end the Procession of Animals started and they walked down the aisle to get blessed at the altar.
Different species, shapes and sizes of animals took part in the procession--Camel, Llamas, Goat, Parrot and Swan, Rabbits, Pot-bellied pig, Snakes and even a Rat. These animals came from a sanctuary in Westtown, NY
