Save The Date : Blessing Of The Animals at St Lukes Montclair 7 October 2012

St Francis Day / Blessing Of The Animals

Each year on the first Sunday of October at 4pm, St Luke's Episcopal Church on South Fullerton in Montclair NJ celebrates St Francis Day with the Blessing of the Animals.

Companion animals are such a blessing in the lives of so many people; on Sunday 7 October reciprocate those blessings at St Lukes.

 Each year a cadre of cats, rodents, birds and even a horse come to receive a blessing, but the dogs will be the first to declare that "cat" spelled backwards is nothing.
