The Blessing of the Animals at Christ Church Greenwich on Sunday, Oct. 2, 2022
11:15 am - 12:15 pm
Jungle Jerry and his Exotic Animals
Christ Church Chapel, upstairs
Jungle Jerry is a children’s favorite with dozens of animals and a story for each one. It’s a “Touch of Nature” show for children of all ages. He will bring his suitcases full of exotic animals and one by one, he will show and tell. Children can pet a soft chinchilla, a bumpy frog, and watch the python wrap itself around Jerry.
4:00 - 4:30 pm
