Blessing Sunday


During our annual Blessing Sunday, we will bless backpacks and new licenses before the school year begins! With the support of your Good Shepherd family, we invite you to head into the school year by centering your heart and mind.

This year we will bless backpacks not only for our parish, but for 200 of our neighbors through¬†Refugee Services of Austin, CASA, and Rosemont. We’ll collect school supply donations until Friday, August 18 (click here to choose your donation), and following the main services on both campuses Sunday, August 20, we will stuff and bless these backpacks.
