Blessing of the Animals

Things to do Free
Honor your brood's dog, cat, guinea pig or other prized pet by bringing it to St. John the Divine, or another local parish, for the annual blessing of the animals. This weekend many congregations throughout the city will celebrate the Feast of Saint Francis by inviting folks (religious and otherwise) to bring their pets to church, so be sure to check details with parishes near you. At St. John the service begins at 11am, followed by the fair at 1pm, which includes music, food, face painting and of course, a petting zoo. All ages.
