Stuffed animal donations sought for children treated for 

exposure to violence


Monrovia, CA, September 14, 2023 — On Sunday, October 1, St. Luke’s Episcopal Church 
in Monrovia will once again celebrate one of its most beloved traditions: the Blessing of 
the Ani-mals in honor of the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi. The church invites all pets 
(and their human companions) to the 10 a.m. service to sit, sing, (chirp, purr or howl), 
worship, and share in God’s blessings.


Attendees are also invited to bring a new stuffed animal to donate to the Martin Luther 
King Jr. Pediatric Hub, an LA County center that provides medical and mental health 
care to children ex-posed to domestic and sexual violence. St. Luke’s parishioner Dr. 
Janet Arnold-Clark is the hub’s Director.
