Let’s ROC 08/18/2018

This month, it’s the Blessing of the Backpacks! Saturday, August 18, bring your phone, calendar or backpack to be blessed and take home a reminder that we are blessed to be a blessing.

Here’s an outline of the schedule:

  • 4:30 – 5 PM: Be a Blessing – serve your neighbors by making playdough for local preschoolers
  • 5 – 6 PM: Say Thanks to God – we’ll get ready for school by having our backpacks blessed and talk about what it means to be blessed to be a blessing
  • 6 – 6:30 PM: Eat! We’ll have one last BBQ to end the summer on a high note

If you would like to help with set up, clean up or in the kitchen, please let me know. If you’re up for attending, RSVP today, or sign up in Sunday in the parish hall. Also, if you’ve already let me know you’re coming, thank you, you’re getting this again as a reminder, and because it is tricky to take names off of these emails.
