All God’s Creatures’ Special Day
By October 7, 2018 0 568•
St. Francis could not have provided better weather as St. John’s Church, Georgetown, honored his feast day at its annual Blessing of the Animals on Sunday, Oct. 7. Ambassador Timothy Towell’s Irish wolfhound Big Beast and Dede Gunawan’s Great Dane Chouko clearly outsized their pawed brethren as, after an understandably brief service, they received an individual blessing and a St. Francis medal from Associate Rector Sarah Duggin, assisted by Seminarian Emily Collette. There were treats for four-footers and their humans, and all behaved admirably on sacred ground.
