Blessing of the Backpacks, a Maui Upcountry "Chapter"!

I know they do this in other places, but I think it's so wonderful that we have a Maui upcountry "chapter"!

From today's Maui News (Friday, July 29, C4):

'Blessing of the Backpacks' set

MAKAWAO - Makawao Union Church will send children off into the new school year with a "Blessing of the Backpacks" on Sunday at the 10:30 a.m. worship service.
Each child, along with his or her book bag, will be blessed as a sign of God's love in the coming school year and in caring for the inevitable jitters, a news release about the event said.
Makawao Union Church is an interdenominational church celebrating 150 years on Maui. It is located at 1445 Baldwin Ave., 2.5 miles mauka of Hana Highway.
