BACKPACK’ SUNDAY AT HOLY TRINITY CATHEDRAL - 09/17/2017
On Sunday, September 17, 2017 children and youth of the Holy Trinity Ukrainian Orthodox Metropolitan Cathedral parish participated in the annual “Backpack Sunday” to mark the beginning of both a new school year, church school year and a new liturgical year. At the end of the service, students gathered at the front of the church with their backpacks where Fr Gene Maximiuk led the congregation in prayer asking for God’s guidance and blessings for the students as they embarked on their new school year. Each student and their backpack then received a blessing with Holy Water. A small gift was given to each child as well, by Dr. Roman Yereniuk on behalf of Project Love
This has become an annual event at the Cathedral and is an opportunity for children and youth of the parish to know they will always have the love and support of their church family.
