St. Peter’s Del Mar to hold ‘Hot Dog Brunch’ and a ‘Blessing of the Backpacks’


St. Peter’s Del Mar kicks off the school year with “Hot Dog Brunch” and a “Blessing of the Backpacks.”

The Sunday School year begins on Sunday, Sept. 8, at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Del Mar. All school-aged kids are welcome to come register after the 9 a.m. service. For this first Sunday of the year, kids can enjoy games, crafts, a “hot dog brunch” and even an ice cream man on the church courtyard.

Bring your weekday school backpacks too: There will be an informal “Blessing of the Backpacks” to help kids start their school year on a positive note.

Sunday School at St. Peter’s is for kids in preschool through Grade 12. It’s normally held after the family-friendly 9 a.m. church service.

St. Peter’s Episcopal Church is located at 334 14th St in Del Mar village, one block east of the 101. For more information, contact Leann Gooding at or at 858-755-1616.
