Blessing of the Backpacks - This Sunday, September 10 at 9:00 AM Mass. Church School at the Advent kicks off September 10!
We start by
Commissioning the Church School Teachers and Caregivers
as a parish family at the 9 o'clock Mass, which is also the service for the
eighth annual Blessing of the Backpacks
. Students of all ages - from pre-school to grad school - come forward with their backpacks during the 9 o'clock Mass to be blessed by a priest. Parents are encouraged to bring their children so they may experience the support of the parish as they begin a new school year.
register for Church School downstairs in Moseley Hall
. Why not join us and invite a family that doesn't yet have a church home? Come out for refreshments, to meet the Church School staff, get a blessing for your backpack, and celebrate as a parish the beginning of another great school year!
