Woof-Woof, Miaou, Cui-Cui. Amen.

Time to take your critter for a stroll!

This Saturday is the annual Blessing of the Animals at the American Cathedral in Paris.

Don’t miss this colorful event, celebrated every year on the weekend closest to the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi.
Bring Rover or Minou, or even a more exotic pet, to receive a blessing.

Results for improved behavior aren't guaranteed, of course. But who knows, maybe you'll all sleep better?

In the interest of liturgical dignity, please be sure pets are appropriately caged, boxed or leashed.

Open to all pets, their owners, and animal lovers.

Saturday, October 4, at 11 o'clock a.m., in the exquisite cloistered Dean's Garden at the American Cathedral, 23 avenue George V, in the 8th arrondissement.
Metro: Alma-Marceau or George V

We're doing the Blessing as well at St. Timothy's Episcopal in West Des Moines, IA...they call it 'Mass on the Grass.' I've been priming Lucie for two weeks to be on her best behavior so she can get a blessing. She looks at me with her big brown eyes, so trusting, but I think the blessing will be more for me than for her!
