Grandparents Day Blessing
Celebrating Saturday, September 13, 2020
God of our ancestors,
we thank you for our children
and our children's children.
They are reminders from you about how precious life can be.
We humbly ask for wisdom and patience as we take pride and wonder in our grandchildren.
Those of us who now pray to you
also seek your blessing upon these men and women
who are our grandparents or who act in place of grandparents.
Bless all the children and their parents and grandparents
with your abundant grace.
We ask all this through the intercession of
Saints Joachim and Anne, parents of the Blessed Virgin Mary,
patron saints of grandparents,
in the power of the Holy Spirit.

Student Backpack Blessing
To celebrate the start of a great school year, every St. Thomas More School student received a tag for their backpacks that had a prayer for the school year on it. Students were not able to bring their backpacks with the tags on them to Mass, so this year Fr. Browning blessed all the tags and then the tags were distributed to all students, in person and remote, blessing them for a successful school year.
