Blessing of the Backpacks - August 25
As we kick off the school year, we offer a special blessing to our youth and children heading off to school for another grade.
At all services on Sunday, August 25, any student who brings a backpack can have it blessed for the upcoming year. This is a wonderful way for us all to go back to school, for those of us who are older to be able to to be with our students, to always provide our love and support, and to stay connected with throughout the school year and all of the experiences that it will bring.
A Message from the Most Rev. Michael Curry, the Presiding Bishop and Primate of The Episcopal Church.
