Blessing of the Animals in Rumson

The annual Blessing of the Animals will take place at St. George’s-by-the-River Church, Waterman Avenue in Rumson on Sunday, October 5 at 2:00 p.m.

Each year, an increasing number of animal lovers and their pets attend this event. Last year, more than 80 participated to be individually blessed by the clergy of St. George’s.

Bring your dogs (leashed ), cats, parrots, fish, turtles, hamsters, or whichever pet you choose to this happy and fun day. Rain or shine.

Everyone is welcome, especially friends and neighbors.
