Controversy over priestly blessings at public schools in Bologna
March 25, 2015
A group of parents and teachers from three public schools in Bologna, Italy, have filed suit against pre-Easter priestly blessings that take place on school grounds.
Attendance at the blessings is voluntary, and they are scheduled after the close of the school day.
The New York Times reported that a judge is scheduled to hear the case on March 26. Blessings have taken place at two of the schools, and the third, scheduled for March 28, has been canceled.
