The Blessing of The Animals

St. Andrew's Episcopal Church in the Heights will commemorate the Feast of St. Francis with an outdoor service and blessing of the animals.

Following the blessing this year, St. Andrew’s will host a festive outdoor party featuring hot “deity” dogs, live music by the Lords of Kool, and beer provided by Saint Arnold brewery (Saint Arnold was the patron saint of hop pickers and Belgian beer makers). We'll also have lemonade, a Kids Table, free Pet Bandanas, and a Signed Certificate from Rev. Jimmy Grace certifying that the animals were blessed.

All are welcome as we celebrate these gifts of God’s creation on the Feast of St. Francis!

This event is free. You may support AniMeals on Wheels by making a donation of unopened dog or cat food.


Sunday, October 4, from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM
