NAZARETH, Pa. -

Some four-legged friends took center stage at a school in Northampton County on Thursday.

Students at Holy Family School in Nazareth were invited to bring their pets to school so they could be blessed.

The event is in honor of the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals.
