Blessing of the Animals

This year, we’ll mark the Feast Day of St. Francis of Assisi on Sunday, October 4th from 2-4pm. We’ll have a 15 minute “service” on the steps of our church on West End Ave. Following that, we’ll have blessing stations along the sidewalk for our neighbors and parishioners to bring their animal companions to receive a treat, a toy, and a blessing. We’ll also have a remembering station, where folks can write the names of animal companions who have passed on. All are welcome to come!
