Blessing of the Animals
to 12 PM
8011 Douglas Avenue , Dallas, TX
The annual Blessing of the Animals is being held in conjunction with the farmers market from 8:00 to 12:00 Noon in the church’s north parking lot at Douglas and Colgate.
Several area pet-oriented businesses will provide free animal-care tips including Billi Bonze Pet Grooming Boutique and Lucky Dog Barkery, and the SPCA will have foster puppies and kittens to begin the adoption process. Author Jennifer Pickens will autograph her book, Pets of the White House, and artist Teresa Persons will have several of her pet portraits on display. A photographer will snap a picture of each pet being blessed, which will be emailed to its owner. All pets – dogs, cats, hamsters, gold fish, even horses – are welcome. They need to be on a leash or in a cage.
In addition to the blessing the pets, the church’s Parish Nurse Ministry and the American Red Cross will conduct a blood donation drive as well. The Red Cross bloodmobile will be on site from 9:00 to 1:00. Anyone wishing to give blood can register online at www.redcrossblood.org using the sponsor code Saintmichael.
