Blessing of the Backpacks
New beginnings are filled with such promise! Fr. Doran gathered on the altar with students and educators to offer the 2014-15 academic year to the Lord. Backpacks and briefcases were symbolically sprinkled with holy water. The congregation prayed for its’ students and educators, that in their pursuit of wisdom they would discover their eternal God as the source of all truth.
