Vacation Bible School: July 18-22

Following Jesus, the Light of the World

     This year, our Vacation Bible School, CaveQuest will ground kids in the rock-solid foundation of God’s love. During the week, kids will strengthen their faith as they learn that God provides hope and light during life’s darkest times.  VBS week is July 18-22, from 9:00 am until 12:00 noon.

       The week will be filled with songs, crafts, Bible lessons, delicious snacks, and fun outdoor games!  Kids will make new, lasting friendships and deepen their relationship with God.

       Groups are divided up according to their rising grade level, from Pre-K through 6th grade.  Older teenagers are needed to help lead the groups and activities. 

       Each morning begins with an opening gathering that introduces the Bible story for the day.  At the end of the week, we have a closing program (Friday, July 22) at 12:00n for parents, grandparents, and family friends.

       Volunteers - both adult and teenagers - are needed to make the week possible.  Please consider volunteering as a group leader, classroom helper, snack helper, photographer, decorating/set up volunteer (on Sunday, July 17), or substitute volunteer.  We can't have VBS without volunteers!  It's a fun week for volunteers as well as children, and the time commitment is only 3 hours a day for just one week out of the summer, or even just one morning!  For more information on how you can help, contact our VBS Coordinator, Christine Burrell, or speak with Father Tripp.

       Space is limited, so register early.  The program is open to non-parishioners as well, so bring your friends!  The $30 cost covers the snacks and craft materials for each child, as well as a VBS T-Shirt, and a CD of the week's songs and music that you can listen to at home or in the car (one CD per family).  

Please Note:  The Registration Deadline is June 27.  After the 27th, you can still sign up if there are extra spaces or if we have a cancellation.  However, we cannot guarantee that children who sign up after the deadline will receive a music CD or t-shirt.

Youth Sunday & Parish Cookout

Sunday, May 22 @ 11:15 Mass

Last Day of Sunday School + Teacher Appreciation + Youth Sunday + Parish Luncheon

     Mark your calendars now for Youth Sunday!  On Sunday morning, May 22 at the 11:15 Mass, we will give thanks for young people of our parish and our rapidly growing youth ministry program.  
     We will celebrate the success of another great year of Sunday school as we thank the teachers officially at the 11:15 Mass.  And at the 11:15 Mass, teenagers will be serving as ushers, greeters, lectors, chalice bearers, and one of our seniors, Anna Siegfried, will be our preacher that morning.
     The entire day will conclude with a festive and delicious cookout at the talented hands of our Knights of Columba.  They will provide the main dish, and everyone is asked to bring a vegetable or side dish to share.  The cookout begins at 12:30pm.    
       Please plan to join us for the celebration and parish luncheon at 12:30pm as we rejoice in the growth of our Christian Education and Youth Ministries!
