Washington Memorial Chapel’s annual “Blessing Of The Animals” event will be this Sunday, October 9th at 3 pm as part of the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi celebration. (St. Francis is the Christian patron saint of animals and nature.) Open to ALL animal lovers and their pets (large and small), this “purr-fectly” popular event will feature a special blessing by Washington Memorial Chapel Rector Father Tommy Thompson and Father Tim Steeves, as well as several VIP guest appearances, booths, and tables to provide information for owners and their pets. For those who have lost a pet, Father will also bless ashes, photographs and other mementos. Organizations and guests with tables at the event include Elmwood Park Zoo, Michele Gargiulo, sommelier and author of Pairing Paws: Dog Breeds and Their Spirit Wines, The Valley Forge Park Alliance, who is a partner in the event, The Washington Memorial Heritage, Piggyback Treats, Main Line Animal Rescue and many more. Live ukulele music will also be performed throughout the event by acclaimed Upper Merion singer-songwriter Lisa Lerman. Her hit song “Another Circle Around the Sun” was featured in October 2020 as part of WHYY’s House Concert Series.
