Blessing of the Animals

Saturday, October 10 • 10:00 am • Dogwood Chapel

To celebrate the Feast of St. Francis, parishioners and members of the community are invited to a socially distanced gathering at Pohick’s Dogwood Chapel (located near the lower parking lot at Pohick Church) for a service honoring all of God’s creations.

Masks are required for all humans! Up to 50 people at a time are allowed. Please bring your own lawn chairs for social distancing. Click here to sign-up for the event!

If you feel uncomfortable attending and would like to have your pet virtually blessed, please email a photo with your name and the pet’s name to by October 9. Some of the pets may be featured on our website!

Pets must be on a leash or caged properly. Please email or call the church office with questions, 703-339-6572.
