The 2018 Blessing of the Animals event gives hundreds of pet parents an opportunity to celebrate the holiday season with their animal friends and to have them blessed by New York City Senior Minister Rev. Dr. Stephen Bauman of Christ Church and Central Synagogue Rabbi Emeritus Peter J. Rubinstein. There will be animals of all shapes, sizes and species—including dogs, cats, birds, fish, horses, llamas, goats, sheep, chickens, and pigs. Exotic and domestic animals will be walked down the aisle to receive individual blessings. The New York Police Department will participate with police horses blessed outside of the church entrance and a K-9 unit included in the processional. The choir from Long Island’s Roosevelt High School will be performing holiday carols and other celebratory songs.See more free New York City events & things to do on Nifty NYC.
