Fr. John Okoro gave out “Backpack Blessings” at all the Tri-Parish Masses at St. Francis Borgia Parish in Sturgis, St. Ambrose Parish in Henshaw, and St. William of Vercelli in Marion on August 27 and 28 for all our school-aged children.
We all pray a hedge of protection around each of our students to have a safe, fun and successful school year!
