St. Luke’s Monrovia Blesses Pets Of All Denominations

Puppy Lennox meets St. Luke’s Monrovia Rector Rev. Neil Tadken as owner Sonja Shea looks on at a previous Blessing of the Animals.

On Sunday, October 8, St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Monrovia will once again celebrate one of its most beloved traditions, the Blessing of the Animals on the Feast Day of St. Francis of Assisi. The church invites everyone to bring their pets to the 10 a.m. service to sit in the sanctuary, share the experience of worship and receive a blessing.
Attendees are also invited to bring a stuffed animal to donate to the Martin Luther King Jr. Pediatric Hub, an LA County center that provides medical and mental health care to children exposed to violence. St. Luke’s parishioner Dr. Janet Arnold-Clark is Director of the Hub.
