The Blessing of the Animals at St. Paul and St. Andrew

On Monday, October 4, St. Paul & St. Andrew United Methodist Church (263 West 86th Street on West End Avenue) will commemorate the Feast Day of St. Francis of Assisi.

Following a brief service on the church steps at 5:30pm, neighbors and parishioners are invited to bring their animal companions to a blessing station to receive a treat, a toy, and a blessing. They’ll also have a remembering station, where folks can write the names of animal companions who have passed on. All are welcome to come!

Some photos from last year:

Another Blessing of the Animals will be taking place at The Cathedral of St. John the Divine on Sunday, October 3.
