Dog blessings June 30

IMG_2493We all know our dogs are little angels—most of the time, anyway—but if you want a little extra insurance, bring them to the National City Christian Church on Thomas Circle in downtown D.C. this Sunday, June 30,  to get formally blessed.

The church is holding its annual dog blessing on the church steps from 10:00 am to 10:20 am. National City Christian Church was completed in 1930, and designed by the same architect who designed the Jefferson Memorial and the National Archives.

Many Catholic and Anglican churches hold ceremonies blessing animals on Oct. 4, the feast day of St. Francis of Assisi, patron saint of animals.

After the ceremony, you can stroll with your dog a few blocks up 14th St. to P St. for brunch or lunch. There are a number of restaurants with plenty of dog-friendly outdoor seating including Logan Tavern and Commissary. For more casual outdoor dining, try Sweet Green, Stoney’s or even Whole Foods. Try the onion rings at Stoney’s—they are awesome!

National City Christian Church is at 5 Thomas Circle NW, Washington, DC 20005.
