Bring your backpacks for a blessing, your smiles for a parish photo, and your prayers for all of our teachers and kids, especially those who will “Step Up” this Sunday in the rite of passage that celebrates their beginning high school.
The 10:00 service of Holy Eucharist will include Steppin’ Up and a Blessing of the Packs. It will be followed by the annual parish photo, picnic at Moran Park, and our sixth annual Kick Off Kick Ball game!
(Dress in comfy clothes, bring picnic chairs, and if able, bring some back-to-school items in your pack that you can pour out for donation.)
We’ll begin our NEW Fall schedule on September 14 with services at 8:15 and 10:00 and classes/experiences/education for all ages at 11:30.
