Bring Your Pet To A Blessing Of The Animals At Saint Paul’s Church October 6

Dog at the Cortelyou Greenmarket

This Sunday, October 6, bring your best furry (or scaly, or feathery) friend to Saint Paul’s Episcopal Church (the yard is on Saint Pauls Court between Ocean Avenue and E 19th Street) for a Blessing of the Animals ceremony in honor of Saint Francis of Assisi, patron saint of animals.

The event will start at 12:45pm with a gathering of neighbors around refreshments from Dunkin Donuts and Meat Palace Supreme, followed by a 1pm blessing by Father Sheldon Hamblin, and a 1:30pm guided tour of the church’s stained glass windows and music from the church’s 1956 Estey organ.
