Blessing of the Animals at Salisbury downtown's 3rd Friday 
General Event Information
Event Category:

Price:
free  
Dates and Times:
August 15, 5:30PM-6:15PM; (Two blessing ceremonies at 5:30 and 6:15 p.m.)

St. Peter’s Episcopal Church will provide animal blessings in its courtyard on St. Peter’s Street downtown as part of the August 15 3rd Friday’s “Dog Days of Summer.” The blessings will take place at 5:30 and 6:15 p.m.

“The Blessing of Animals is a tradition that is associated with St. Francis of Assisi,” said the Rev. David Michaud, St. Peter’s rector, who will preside. “Since 3rd Friday this month will have a lot of pets walking about, we thought we’d come to the animals and invite them and their owners to receive a blessing.” St. Peter’s is just off the Downtown Plaza.

All members of the public and their animal companions are invited to participate. The ceremony is short, beginning with Scripture passages and prayers giving thanks for all creation and ending with an individual blessing for each animal. Pets should be on a leash or in a carrier.

Historic St. Peter’s Church (circa. 1887) will also be open for tours on 3rd Friday from 5 to 7 p.m. For more information, go to www.stpeterschurch.net or call (410) 742-5118.
