Blessing of the Animals
Washington National Cathedral honors the feast day of Saint Francis of Assisi (c. 1180–1226), patron saint of animals and the environment, with a yearly Blessing of the Animals service on the Cathedral’s west steps. All pets and their caretakers are invited to attend.
This year we welcome special guests Lois Wye from Washington Animal Rescue League (WARL), Victoria Strang from Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), and Lisa LaFontaine from Washington Humane Society (WHS). WARL and WHS will both have animals available for adoption.
