To many people, a pet is their best friend. I came across this advertisement at Mission Dolores. I have heard about this type of service before, but I have never actually seen an advertisement for it.
This years’s blessing has passed, but you can inquire about it with the Episcopal Church of St. John the Evangelist. St. John is located at 1661 15th Street, near Mission Dolores. Members of all denominations and their pets are welcome. The ceremony is generally performed in early October in rememberance of St. Francis of Assisi, who love all creatures.
