blessing of the backpacks
On Sunday, August 18th , bring your backpacks (or lunch boxes, pencil cases, or anything else you or your child takes to school!) to the 10:30 service, and we’ll have the opportunity to bless them (and their owners) as a way of starting off the new school year. (Please note that, due to the rector’s sabbatical, this year’s Blessing of the Backpacks will not include the school families and the installation of new school staff, as it has in past years.)

labor day liturgy
On the Sunday of Labor Day Weekend, it is our tradition is to pause and remember the contributions that we all make to the building up of God’s kingdom in the world and to renew our understanding of each of our particular vocations as a partnership with God. On Sunday, September 1st , you are encouraged to bring a symbol of your labor to present at the altar at either the 8:00 am or 10:30 am service, and the offertory will include a special liturgy to sanctify these offerings of our time and talents that we make to God in our daily lives. Not all of us have paid employment, and even if you do, your job may not be your primary vocation. Spend some time reflecting on what your vocation at this time of your life is, what God is calling you to do or be – it may be related to what you are paid to do, what you are studying or learning, what you do to care for others, or something else entirely.
