St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of Sacred Heart and St. Joseph’s hospitals, was a man who spent his life caring for the poor, the under-served and the downtrodden. His love of all God’s creatures also extended to animals. It is in honor of this love and in the spirit of this great saint that the hospitals are offering this unique, ecumenical event.
