Blessing of the Animals October 2015

There are Two Locations for Blessing of the Animals

Saturday, October 3 at 12:30 pm
inside the Shirlington Dog Park (by the mural at the Oxford St. entrance off of Four Mile Run Drive) (map)


Sunday, October 4 - 5 pm
at St. John's Episcopal Church (side yard — inside if raining)
415 S. Lexington St. 22204 Glencarlyn Community of Arlington (map)

Everyone is invited to bring your pet(s) to either of the Blessing of the Animals.
There will be a brief service followed by individually blessing of each pet.

If your pet does not play well with others, you may use a carrier or bring a picture of your pet.

Animal blessings are conducted near St. Francis Day because he was
thought to be friendly and accessible to all living creatures.
