  • 10:00 a.m.: Worship Service Online
  • 12:00-1:30 p.m.: Drive-Through Blessing at the Parking Lot of the Georgia World Congress Center (Blue Lot)

We’re excited to celebrate the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi with our annual Blessing of the Animals! We will pray God’s blessing on all creatures during our 10:00 a.m. worship service on Sunday, September 27, so make sure to send photos of your furry, feathery, and scaly friends to Jocelyn Cassada at jcassada@allsaintsatlanta.org by Wednesday, September 23.

Drive-Through Blessing in the Parking Lot of the Georgia World Congress Center

After the online worship service, we will host a drive-through blessing in the parking lot of the Georgia World Congress Center (Blue Lot) from 12:00-1:30 p.m. (the All Saints’ parking lot is closed due to construction).

You are welcome to drive-through and have your pets blessed any time between 12:00 and 1:30 p.m., but to help with the flow of traffic, we recommend the following schedule:

  • 12:00-12:30 p.m.: Last Names A-I
  • 12:30-1:00 p.m.: Last Names J-R
  • 1:00-1:30 p.m.: Last Names S-Z


When going south on Northside Drive, right after you pass the big intersection of Ivan Allen Jr. Blvd/ Joseph E. Lowery Blvd NW (this is a big intersection where those streets all meet with a light), the parking lot will be almost immediately on your right. We will have volunteers at the entrance holding signs so you cannot miss us! If you are coming North on Northside Drive, the parking lot will be on your left right before the Ivan Allen Jr. Blvd/Joseph E. Lowery Blvd NW intersection. All cars will enter here and exit at the back of this large parking lot.
