Blessing of the Animals Will Be at Christ Church October 6 PDF Print Email

Oct. 2, 2013: Christ Church celebrates the tenth anniversary of its Blessing of the Animals this year on October 6 at 5:00 pm in the church. This beloved Christ Church tradition is held each year on the Sunday closest to the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi. St. Francis was renowned for his connection to nature, even preaching to the animals he encountered.

The church will be filled with the jubilant and raucous sounds of our special guests greeting each other and joining in the songs and prayers. The lively service culminates with the procession of the animals up to the front of the church to receive an individual blessing from the clergy. A reception follows with treats for both people and pets. 

Fr. Michael Bird, rector of Christ Church, said, "We are thrilled to open our doors to our animal friends and their companions for the tenth year. I can guarantee that we will make a joyful and unique noise to the Lord at this service. All of God's creatures, great and small, are welcome--although I will admit that blessing a tarantula is a test!"

Sept. 7, 2011:  Bronxville, Eastchester, and Tuckahoe houses of worship are planning an event to remember the lost, the injured, and the heroes of 9/11.

The "Community 9/11 Commemoration" will be held on Sunday, September 11, at 3:00 pm at The Reformed Church of Bronxville.

Organized by the Bronxville, Eastchester and Tuckahoe Interfaith Council (BIC), the civic ceremony will feature stirring music (including bagpipes), a community choir, commemorative readings, greetings from Bronxville, Eastchester, and Tuckahoe community leaders, a time of silent prayer, and the ringing of a commemoration bell.

According to BIC co-chair Rev. Dr. Robert Hartwell of Village Lutheran Church, "The civic event is designed to bring all residents of the Town of Eastchester together in a solemn moment of remembrance and prayer."

BIC co-chair Rabbi Morris W. Barzilai of Sinai Free Synagogue expressed his hope that the service would be widely attended by clergy and laity of the Bronxville, Eastchester, and Tuckahoe community.  Barzilai added that "special recognition would be given to police, firefighters, and emergency personnel in our local community who continue to work on our behalf in challenging times."

Clergy from Bronxville, Eastchester, and Tuckahoe (and congregations in surrounding areas that serve Bronxville, Eastchester, and Tuckahoe residents) have been invited to process in the service and to wear the vestments appropriate for their tradition.

Firefighters, police, and emergency personnel from Bronxville, Tuckahoe, and Eastchester are also invited to attend in uniform and process with the clergy.  Clergy and processing emergency personnel should arrive at 2:30 pm and gather in the Copenhaver Room of The Reformed Church of Bronxville.

For more information on the service and the community choir, contact the host of the ceremony, Rev. Keith Dragt, at The Reformed Church at 914-337-6776.
