St. Francis of Assisi Blessing of the Animals
3328 Franklin Avenue
Millbrook, NY 12545
Bring your pet to be blessed by Fr. Matt. Please make sure for your pet’s safety that it is crated or leashed. New this year for the St. Francis Day Celebration we ask that you also bring donations of pet food, litter, etc. Sunday which we will bring to the Dutchess County SPCA. Some items on the shelter’s wish list include canned cat and dog food, non-clumping litter, cake size paper plates, bleach, paper towels, clean towels and blankets (please – no cash or check donations). The entire list is available in the back of the church. This effort does not diminish or lessen our committed ministry to people, but rather an invitation to offer an additional helping hand to God’s creatures.
