BLESSING OF THE ANIMALS

May God, who created the animals of this earth, continue to protect,
 and sustain us all.

On Sunday, October 3 at 3 pm, we will celebrate God’s love, care, and concern for creation at our annual “Blessing of the Animals” celebration. Parishioners, family, friends, and community members are invited to bring their animals for a blessing administered by Father Tommy. All animals are welcome. Prayers will also be offered for deceased animals.  

This year, we are excited to welcome the Kennel Club of Philadelphia with dogs from their therapy dog program to show and share with attendees. Additionally, the Kennel Club will have information about the upcoming National Dog Show, scheduled for November 20-21 at the Oaks Expo Center.

We will also be joined by Karen Hencken, the reigning Mrs. Pennsylvania Ambassador.  Karen’s platform is “Rescue Dogs”, and she will share information from Main Line Rescue, including paperwork for initiating the adoption of available rescues.

Plan to join us for a fun-filled, meaningful afternoon at Washington Memorial Chapel.
