The Pope may be gone, but you can still get your dog blessed in Brooklyn

If you missed His Holiness’s visit to the city but you’re still looking for a little spiritual communion, consider living vicariously through your dog. This Sunday, October 4, you can take your pets to Carroll Gardens to get blessed by church leaders from the neighborhood. Yes, you can even get your goldfish blessed by a priest. 

This is sure to be a fun time for Catholics and cat-holics alike. Pet blessing is part and parcel of the coming weekend festival celebrating St. Francis of Assisi, who loved animals. Not enough to save them from the coming Rapture, obviously, but it’s the thought that counts.

The event takes place this Sunday at 2pm in Carroll Park. In case of rain, the event will be held at St. Paul’s Church (199 Carroll Street).
