Hi Linda,
Our congregation has done a Blessing of the Backpacks for the past two years and include teachers in this blessing as well. Students receive a bag tag with a blessing on it and teacher/education staff receive a magnet with a specific blessing.

Last year one of our members brought his briefcase to be blessed so this year we had a blessing of the briefcases on Labor Day Sunday in conjunction with our vocation focus.

Thank you for sharing this story. What a wonderful way to start the school year – or go off to work, remembering our many calls to vocation. Blessings to you.
