ACS in Perth Amboy, NJ completed its first full week of school with a beautiful whole school Liturgy and a special Backpack Blessing. The children placed their backpacks on the steps of the altar. Some book bags had student’s first set of school crayons, some had thick algebra books – but all were filled with our student’s excitement and love for learning. Father Ivan prayed and asked God to continue to watch over our students and to guide their choices. Today, we celebrated God’s gift of learning, and we prayed for His blessing on students, teachers and our school for the coming year. Wonderful end to the first full week of school!
