St. Ann’s North Garden on Clinton Street
St. Ann’s welcomes the whole community and their pets to the fourth annual St. Francis Day Blessing of the Animals. Animals of every kind (including stuffed!) and their owners are encouraged to attend. Prayers of remembrance for beloved deceased pets also will be offered at the brief outdoor ceremony.
St. Ann’s rector, the Rev. John Denaro, and new associate rector, the Rev. Katherine Salisbury, will preside together.
In addition to the animal blessing ceremony, St. Ann’s expects to host a cat adoption group for the afternoon.
In the event of rain, this event will take place in the church sanctuary. Please join us at this great and growing tradition of the parish.
