Backpacks and Blessings!

Donate a Backpack and Bring Your Own for a Blessing!

On Sunday, September 10, we begin our program year with a blessing of the backpacks at 10 am for kids and adults who carry their important portables with them to school or work. Bring yours in for a blessing!  If you are able, we would like also to provide backpacks and school supplies to elementary students in the Milton Public School system who would benefit receiving them as gifts from St. Michael’s.  We are looking for 12 backpacks filled with the following supplies:

– pack of loose-leaf paper
– pack of graphite pencils
– 1 eraser
– 1 mini-sharpener
– pack of colored pencils
– pack of crayons
– 1 pencil case
– 2 folders

Can you bring in a backpack filled with these items on or before September 10th, so we can include them in the blessing?  Please place them in the box in the Upper Parish Hall.  Feel free to share the project with others!
