Back-To-School Blessings & Cereal Socials
Join us for our annual Back-To-School Blessings! This year, we will gather live at 11 am via our Community Hour Zoom — welcoming all students and teachers, their encouragers and fellow parishioners. We invite those readying for school to bring whatever they would like to have blessed: perhaps the traditional backpack or briefcase for those returning to their classrooms; or, maybe, Zooming in from that curated corner of their home where – and with what devices – they will engage in distance learning; or, for our youngest (or youngest at heart!), a stuffed companion who promises inspiration for the academic year.
The short service of prayer and blessing will conclude before 11:15 am. Then, adults are welcome to stay in the Zoom for our usual Community Hour programming. Children, Youth, and their parents will receive separate links for their own back-to-school, “Cereal Socials” (bring your Lucky Charms!) to reconnect before school begins.
