Vacation Bible School is an extension of the faith formation of children enrolled in kindergarten through sixth grade. Scheduled in the evening hours from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. for one week each summer, our faith comes alive in a way that appeals to children, with games and activities geared toward the teachings of our church. Snacks are also provided, and the week ends with a pizza party.
In addition to our volunteer catechists, the teens of our parish contribute to the energy surrounding the theme of the program. Past themes have included: Marvelous Mystery - The Mass Comes Alive; Cool Kingdom Party - Mary Leads Us Closer to Jesus; Hometown Nazareth, Where Jesus Was a Kid; Panda Mania; High Seas Expedition - Exploring the Mighty Love of God; Weird Animals - Where Jesus' Love Is One-of-a-Kind, Serengeti Trek - Where Kids are Wild about God; Power Lab - Discovering Jesus' Miraculous Power; and most recently, Digging for Treasure - Parables Revealed.
