JOHNSON CITY — In celebration of the Feast Day of St. Francis, patron saint of animals, St. John’s Episcopal Church will hold a blessing of the animals on Sunday, Oct. 3, at 3 p.m.
We will gather with our beloved pets in Kings Commons Park (112 N. Commerce Drive, Johnson City) for a brief liturgy and blessing.
Parking is nearby behind the Renasant Bank or is easily walkable from the church.
Please make sure dogs are on a short leash and cats and other small animals secured in a carrier. Water and dog treats will be provided.
Any monetary donations or donations of unopened pet food will be given to the Humane Society of Washington County.
