Blessing of the Animals
October 6, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Bring your furry, feathery, and scaly family members for our annual Blessing of the Animals community event. Meet us outdoors at the Spanish Steps in the Kalorama neighborhood on 22nd Street NW, just south of S Street NW.
Join your neighbors and members of the wider Dupont Circle community for this gathering in honor of the Feast Day of St. Francis of Assisi (c. 1180–1226), patron saint of animals and the environment. All are welcome!
Brief prayers and individual pet blessings by the clergy of St. Margaret’s
