St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in Harriman will open its doors and grounds to the public next month for its fourth annual Blessing of the Animals.
The event will start at 2 p.m. Oct. 6 in the church at 190 Circle Drive in the West Hills area.
St. Andrew’s is joining churches across the country and around the world in this custom.
“It is a simple tradition, but it brings comfort to many,” said the Rev. Harry Howard, priest in charge at St. Andrew’s.
