Thanks to all who participated in this year's VBS and all our leaders and helpers who helped to run it!

We had a great time all week learning about our theme - 'Shipwrecked: Rescued by Jesus.' 

Thank you to all our children who also participated in our fundraiser throughout the week for Catholic Relief Services.  We collected 4,484 coins and dollars for a total of $330.09 to donate to CRS’ Grow Good Food campaign.  Great work!

  What did parents and adult/teen helpers think of last year's VBS?  
 

Parents:

My child received a deeper love and understanding for God and she now understands how much God loves her.”

“My daughter came home and put on her apron and said she was the teacher at a preschool. When asked what she was going to teach her students she replied, ‘That God loves them.’”

 
 

Adult Helpers and Teen Leaders on how VBS help them learn more about God:

“Just being able to see the kids learn about Jesus through the songs, games, and other activities, helped strengthen my faith!”

 “Becoming more familiar with the Bible verses and connecting the key points to our everyday existence... in a way for children to understand which in turn helped me become more aware having to teach it!”

 
 

Adult Helpers and Teen Leaders on how VBS help them meet new people and feel more connected to the community:

“I recognize more people at Mass now and it feels great to have that connection.”

“I got to be friends with the crew leaders, the kids, and the parents!”
