Central PA Live

One of Manhattan’s most historic churches looked more like a zoo today.

The annual blessing of the animals at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine drew all types of creatures. There were ponies camels, goats, and even a hot pink chicken named Lady Gaga.

The event honors the patron saint of animals, St. Francis of Assissi, who died October 4, 1226.
