Tampa, FL September 25, 2017 – St. Clement’s Episcopal Church will host its 31st Annual Blessing of the Animals Festival on Saturday, October 6, 2018, from 10 AM until 2 PM, at 706 W. 113th Avenue in Tampa.
The Blessing of the Animals is a 31-year tradition at St. Clement’s. Come share a day of joy with the whole family. All animals are welcome. Each pet will be blessed individually, inside the church, and will receive a St. Francis medal.
We welcome rescue animals seeking their own forever families.
Enjoy a festive day under the grandfather oak trees, much like a small country fair, with family-friendly attractions for all to enjoy, including arts & crafts, book signings, Café Under the Oaks, Cookie Jar, dog trainer, face painting, Kids Korral, pet photos, pet nail trims, vendors, youth booth, & more.
Please join us.
Net proceeds will go to the St. Clement’s General Endowment Fund and to K9 Partners for Patriots of Brooksville.
