St. Francis of Assisi
Christ Cathedral at Salina was honoring St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals, with a celebration of the Blessing of the Animals. I wouldn’t miss this opportunity to present Wylie before the altar to receive blessings and for me too, so that I will be guided for his care.

(and people too)
St. Peter’s Church – Aurora, KS
Built in 1892 and then re-erected in 1909
The only time we were in this beautiful church was for the burial of our dear priest and friend Fr. Steve Letourneau, who was killed in a car wreck on Palm Sunday April 4, 1993. We would go to early Mass at the Chapel and Fr. Steve would drive to another small town to offer Mass, then he would come over for Sunday dinner, followed by a nap.
