By on September 5, 2017

The Episcopal Church of the Holy Spirit‘s Gathering Sunday, when the full choir and music director are back singing more regularly and Sunday School classes return, is Sunday, September 10. Students of all ages are encouraged to bring their backpacks to church for its 10 a.m. worship service.  A special blessing will be offered as a new academic year commences.

For the first half of the service, kids (Pre-K through 8th grade) will participate in an arts and craft project to kick off the new semester. For the second half of the worship, the students will join their parents and guardians as the congregation celebrates Eucharist together.
