St. Francis of Assisi Celebration at Parroquia San Jose

Rev. Neddy Astudillo regularly incorporates caring for all creation in worship at Parroquia San Jose, a Lutheran and PCUSA congregation in Beloit, WI. This fall, the congregation included a celebration of Saint Francis of Assisi. Neddy writes, "We had a rehabilitated pelican at church. He came to talk to us about Climate change and storms, like the one that through him off course (Katrina), and made him end up in Illinois. He was wounded enough to have a wing amputated, but is now a teacher and such an amazing presence wherever he goes!"
