Blessing of the Animals
A blessing of the animals will be held Sunday at a church on Park Avenue on the Upper East Side.
A llama, a mini horse, falcons, dogs and even a camel were offered blessings at the Morningside Heights church to celebrate the feast of St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals and the environment.
It was a different flock that gathered for church services on Sunday morning, as congregants of the two- and four-legged varieties gathered in Morningside Heights.
