The Pet Blessing is in remembrance of St. Francis of Assisi.  His feast day is Oct 4, therefore, every October we have a pet blessing at school.  This year Deacon Steve Borowicz will be at Nazareth Academy Catholic School on Thursday Oct 2 to bless student's animals.  In the past, students have brought dogs, cats, birds, rabbits, stuffed animals and more for this fun loving occasion.  The blessing will begin at 3pm sharp on the school playground.
