11195Re: [dre-talk] Blessing of Children
- Aug 20 12:44 PMHello Laurie,
I am no longer a DRE but I would take the blessings from the Blessings book that blessed the children, teachers, parents etc. Catechectical Sunday which is in September also has many resource materials for such an event. Hope this is helpful. Evelyn Kuhn

Greetings fellow ministers!
I once again seek your insight and wisdom as we prepare to open our doors for a new school year. Our population is nearly 50% non-Catholic and the faculty has requested that students who are not able to receive Communion receive a blessing. Is this a practice at your parish and was it readily accepted by your community?
As the DRE, I loved the idea and began researching catechesis on the significance of a blessing in order to prepare parents,teachers and students. Yet, I was also very surprised by the number of folks who were against it, including the clergy.
Thanks so much for your input and I look forward to your feedback.
