ALLEGAN: Blessing of Animals

Sunday, October 6, 2019 - 1:30pm

The Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd in Allegan will host its annual Blessing of the Animals on Sunday, Oct. 6, at 1 p.m

The public is invited to bring their pets of any stripe—furry, finned or feathered—to the ceremony that honors St. Francis, the patron saint of animals and, more recently, ecology.

The church is at 101 Walnut St., and the ceremony will be outside on the church lawn, weather permitting. In the case of rain, the event will be rescheduled for the following Sunday, Oct. 13.

Water and snacks for pets and parents will be provided, as will waste management. Church officials noted that animals must be secured at all times.

A photographer will be on-hand to shoot the event and photos will be available later on the church website.
