Christ Episcopal Church, Covington officially invites you to the Annual Blessing of the Animals on Sunday, October 15th. The event honors the Feast Day of St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals. Attendees are encouraged to bring a lawn chair or blanket, and of course, your special animal friends. The pet blessing service will begin at 4:15 p.m. and will be followed by food, music and fellowship. For your own safety and that of others, all animals should be on a leash or in a carrier. Stuffed animals and pictures of pets may also be presented for a blessing. Celebrity guests will include Pierre T. Pelican, mascot of the New Orleans Pelicans pro basketball team, and the Christ Episcopal School Wildcat mascot. There will also be a children’s craft corner, face painting, a petting zoo, a doggie kissing booth, and representatives from area animal shelters and sanctuaries. Music will be provided by The Celebration Band, featuring Matt Lemmler, Ashley Lemmler, Calvin Morin-Martin and Dan Caro, and complimentary food and drink will be available. Pets of all varieties are welcome!
