Blessing of the Animals

All Saints Episcopal Church, 333 Tarpon Dr, Fort Lauderdale, will be holding its Blessing of the Animals on October 9 from 11 a.m. – 12 p.m.

Saint Francis of Assisi, whose feast day is celebrated on October 4, is the patron saint of animals which makes this the traditional time of the year for pet blessings. This service is a great time to gather together, honor and give thanks for animal friends. Mother Leslie and Father Carl will offer blessings to those animals present during the worship.

All animals either be on a leash or in a cage of some type. All pets are welcomed. In keeping with the current pandemic guidelines at All Saints, all (human) worshipers are asked to wear masks at all times.
