(Please note, in case of rain the ceremony will be held at St. Paul's Church at 199 Carroll Street.)
If you have a pet, large or small, you might want to bring it to Carroll Park this Sunday, October 4th, 2015 at 2 PM for the Blessing of the Animals in honor of St. Francis of Assisi. The event will be held next to the War Memorial. (Carroll Street between Smith and Court Streets)
The blessing has been a beloved tradition in the Carroll Gardens neighborhood and is held jointly by St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, Sacred Hearts-St. Stephen Roman Catholic Church, and St. Paul & St. Agnes Roman Catholic Parish..
