Blessing of the animals at St. James’

Published: Thursday, September 27, 2012 at 11:35 AM.

Thursday, Oct. 4 is the celebration of the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi who is noted for his love of animals.  St. James' is offering a service of "Blessing of the Animals," in anticipation of the Feast Day, on Saturday, Sept. 29 at 4 p.m. ET.  If you would like to have your pet blessed, please assemble in the church parking lot by 4 p.m. All animals must be on a lead, in a carrier, or otherwise suitably restrained - you can imagine the chaos if they were not.

St. James’ is located at 800 22nd Street.
