Dear Christ Church,
Students, teachers, and administrators are returning to school, while parents are becoming home educators in record numbers, whether by choice or necessity. This year the annual “back-to-school” moment brings a mixture of joy, dread, confusion, and opportunity. It also brings a new, and more personal, twist to our back-to-school blessing.
I invite all students, teachers, administrator, and home educators to sign up for a blessing next week at 112 Medina St. in conjunction with our drive-thru consecration. Bring your kids, their backpacks, yourself . . . and bring your elements—we’ll all celebrate Holy Eucharist together August 30th. This is a vital way of expressing our unity and communion as body of Christ, brought together as the parish of Christ Church. Sign up here to come to the church for a back-to-school blessing and/or consecration of elements by a Christ Church priest.
My brother-in-law, David Taylor, has written some wonderful back-to-school prayers here for our diocese.
Grace and peace,
