Spotted in church on Sunday: Bryan, Peyton and Karen Krych and their dog Elsa attend St. Mark’s Lutheran Church Blessing of the Animals service in Spokane on Sunday. The service celebrates the feast day of Francis of Assisi, a nature lover and patron saint of animals and the environment. Each year, St. Mark’s invites the parish and community to bring their pets to be blessed. See more photos from the service at www.spokesman.com/picture-stories.
