Blessing of the Backpacks

During 10 am service - all welcome


10:00 AM

The congregation at St. John's Episcopal Church would like to invite your family to join us on Sunday, September 9 at our 10 am worship service.

During the service we will be blessing backpacks that the children are using for school this year. In addition to the blessing, each child will receive a tag for their bag that says that it has been blessed by a congregation that loves and supports this student. Adults can bring their briefcases too!

If you have questions, please feel free to contact me at 703-671-6834 or mail me at rector@stjohnsarlingtonva.org.
Blessings to you during this week as your children prepare to settle into school and we look forward to seeing you soon!

Rev. Ann Barker
