Blessing of the Backpacks

Backpack Blessing

Join us in collecting school supplies and helping to provide tutoring for a local elementary school.

At Holy Communion throughout the year we collect school supplies for our partners at the Barbara Jordan north of Olivette.

We make a particular drive for school supply donation in the late summer, as the school year approaches.

On the last Sunday before school starts in University City, all students, administrators, teachers, bus-drivers etc. are invited to come forward with their backpacks for a blessing. ¬†At that time we also bless the ingathered school supplies for Barbara Jordan Elementary School. We’ll have special music, and a children’s sermon that Sunday.

If you would like more information about getting involved as a tutor at Barbara Jordan School many of our members volunteer through the OASIS tutoring program run by UCity School.¬†Contact Mary Allen if you’re interested in getting involved.
