Blessing of the Backpacks (and Brains!)
August 22, 2021 @ 10:45 am - 11:00 am
The Blessing of the Backpacks (and briefcases and brains) will be held on August 22, at 10:45 a.m., in the Churchyard. Students and teachers are invited to bring a backpack or briefcase (empty is fine) to represent the hopes and challenges of the new (or year-round) school year. A prayer will be said and the bags and brains will be asperged (sprinkled with holy water). Godspeed in the academic adventure!
Please note, masking is required for all (over the age of 2) at the Chapel of the Cross.
