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.
