Beyond Sunday: Backpack Blessing

Backpack Blessing

In celebration of Catholic Schools Week 2022 (January 30-February 5), the Shrine’s Beyond Sunday program brought Mary’s message of the Miraculous Medal to area students. The blessing, presented by Deacon James Mahoney with a greeting from Gina Ingiosi (Faith Formation/Outreach Program Coordinator), included distributing and blessing Miraculous Medals. Each student also received  a prayer card and was invested into the Miraculous Medal family. Dozen of schools participated in person and virtually. Students, such as these pictures from St. Laurence School in Upper Darby, Pennsylvania, warmly welcomed the event and proudly displayed their medals.
