Sunday, October 2nd, 11:00 AM Service, 1:00 PM Afternoon Fair, Feast of St. Francis Blessing of the Animals at the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine, 1047 Amsterdam Avenue and 112th Street. St. Francis of Assisi's love of all animals is reflected in the annual October ceremony that blesses all creatures big and small at St. John the Divine. Worshipers arrive with their pets but a menagerie of animals as large as elephants have shown up in the past since the cathedral is the largest one of its kind in the world. Service usually ends by 1:00 PM and the parade of mammals, reptiles and fowl can be seen going down the steps for public viewing. A public fair in the courtyard afterwards also provides an opportunity for pets to be blessed. Get more details on the Cathedrals site: LINK
