We are excited for the upcoming Vacation Bible School! The theme is “Treasures of Our Faith” because each day of VBS our kids discover a new treasure of our Catholic faith. The lessons are based on Sacred Scripture and Catholic Tradition and the Doctors of the Church. Each day children will listen to the story of Saint Jerome and his friends, Lion & Donkey. Saint Jerome was given the enormous task of translating the Holy Bible into a language the people could understand. Our children will participate in a variety of games, Bible stories, easy-to-make crafts, and upbeat music with lively actions for each song.
Lesson 1: The Rock - The Holy Father
Lesson 2: The Crossed Keys - Papal Succession
Lesson 3: The Vatican - St. Peters Basilica
Lesson 4: The Greatest Treasure - The Eucharist
Lesson 5: The Monstrance & A Call to Holiness
NEW THIS YEAR, as you have seen, is our daily time change. Each day we will be meeting in the evening rather than the day time to help with our need for adult volunteers. We hope you will help make our VBS week successful in some way. You can find an adult volunteer sheet in the narthex or online. Please be sure to sign-up.
ALSO, with the new time this year, we understand some young’sters have evening activities (ie. Baseball, dance, soccer). Therefore, we are encouraging families to attend VBS on the days they don’t have evening activities scheduled. We understand a families “full” summer schedule, and are trying to allow families the chance to enrich their faith this summer as well.
