Alexandria, VA – Each year Christians all over the world honor the Patron Saint of Animals, St. Francis of Assisi near Oct 4th. Trinity United Methodist Church at 2911 Cameron Mills Road in Alexandria always celebrates the last Saturday of September.
All faiths are welcome to join with your amazing pets on Saturday September 26th at 9 a.m. for the annual Community Blessing of the Animals.
Gather early under oaks on Cameron Mills Road, wear your mask, bring your pet, and even pose for photos, which will be available after the event. After a brief reading, each pet will be individually blessed by Pastor Grace Han, appropriately socially distanced. You will receive a Certificate of Blessing with your pet’s name to commemorate the event.
