Blessing of the Backpacks 2018 Announcement
Our annual multigenerational Blessing of the Backpacks service will take place Sunday, August 26th at 10am in the Sanctuary. People of all ages are invited to attend and bring their backpacks, bookbags, rucksacks, briefcases, valises, duffle-bags, etc. and receive a symbol of blessing, love and protection to mark the start of a new year whether in school, work or life.
This service will conclude with an Ice Cream Social where all are invited to meet and greet our new Acting Director of Religious Education Joscelyn Young during the Fellowship Hour.
We are asking all participants to bring non-perishable, child-friendly lunch box items to donate to the Grafton Food Bank (juice boxes, snack bags, etc.).
