This item was brought to my attention via an email blast from the wonderful Pastor-In-Charge of the Church of the Ascension, John Merz. He writes:
I am writing to have you help advertise our community Annual Blessing and Remembrance of the Animals to be held at the Episcopal Church of the Ascension Saturday October 13th at 3pm. If you were able to post on your blogs, online publications and facebook pages that would be wonderful. Here is the text for the ad and a jpeg of the poster is attached.

Any questions about this please contact me (via email) at: ascensionbrooklyn (at) gmail (dot) com
