Blessing of the Animals at St. Alban’s
Please mark your calendar and plan to bring your furry and feathered loved ones on Saturday, October 5, at 10:30 a.m. for this fabulous tradition celebrated once again at St. Alban’s in honor of the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi. Bring your pet for the Blessing of the Animals ceremony to take place in their beautiful Memorial Gardens. Even if you don’t have a pet, please join them for this fun event. Please, pet owners are responsible for controlling their critters at all times. If you have a scaredy –dog, cat, bird or fish bring a photo!
Refreshments will be provided for all in attendance – pets and their human escorts, as well. They are pleased, this year, to collect cash donations or donations of goods (blankets, towels, pet food, litter, etc) to benefit the Pet Pal Animal Shelter of St. Petersburg, a no-kill, non-profit shelter. They rescue animals from shelters that euthanize and find forever homes for them. Please check their website at www.petpalanimalshelter.com for their Wish List. St. Alban’s is located at 330 85th Avenue, St. Pete Beach. Call the church at 360-8406.
