Fishers Island community members
and their pets joined
Rev. Michael Spencer of St. John’s Church
for the
Blessing of the Pets
Sunday, July 25, 5:30 p.m.
on the Village Green.

All furry, feathered, and scaled creatures welcome.

Christians everywhere celebrate the feast of St. Francis of Assisi on October 4 by having their pets blessed in the spirit of this patron saint of animals and ecology.

Of course, on Fishers we sometimes do things (and timing) a little differently…

Sunday afternoon, over 30 dogs and their families gathered on the village green for the annual blessing of the pets. All dogs (and people) behaved! ~ Rev. Michael Spencer
