Backpack Blessing on Elizabeth Ann Seton’s Birthday

August 27, 2017 @ 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm EDT

To celebrate Elizabeth Ann Seton’s birthday and her legacy of education, the Shrine is having a Blessing of the Backpacks for students of every age. It takes place during our usual 1:30 Mass. All are welcome to join us. If you don’t use a backpack, please bring whatever you might use in your studies- a book bag, basket, tablet or anything else. Our priest will provide a blessing for an enriching year of learning and growth.

After mass, we’ll celebrate Elizabeth Ann Seton’s birthday with activities for kids of all ages.
