Blessing of the school year

The school year begins again soon, and on Sunday, September 1st, during the children’s sermon, we will have a special blessing for students and for everyone who works in education in any way.   Students of any age are encouraged to bring their backpacks or something else that represents the beginning of school to them.  Teachers, aides, principals, administrators, office staff, cooks and cafeteria servers, librarians, janitors, and bus drivers, crossing guards, and anyone else whose work supports the education of our communities’ young people are also invited to come and receive a blessing and affirmation of your vocation as you serve children and families in your daily work!
