Blessing of the Animals 2010

When: Sun., Oct. 3, 1:45-3:30 p.m. 2010

Because Saint Francis is renowned for his bonds with birds and other living creatures, churches all over the world perform annual blessings of animals on his feast day. SkylineUnitedChurchof Christ (12540 Skyline Blvd., Oakland) holds its tenth annual Blessing of the Animals on Sunday, Oct. 3. Humans are welcome to bring their pets -- whether they have hooves, paws, feathers, or fins -- for the ritual, a walk through the courtyard's labyrinth, and a feast of cookies, biscuits, and bones. 1:45 p.m., free.
