Vacation Bible School is a wonderful opportunity for the children of our Parish, grades Pre-School (3&4 year-old) – 4th grade, to learn more about our Catholic Faith in a fun and interactive way!  We play games, sing songs, and provide crafts and scripture to teach the children the beauty of our faith and God’s sacred word.

VBS 2018 will be held July 9-13, 2018, from 9 am until Noon on Monday-Thursday, with a celebration Dinner on Friday evening for the whole family. Our theme this year is Treasures of Faith: Challenging Kids to Explore What We Believe. This Catholic VBS is a treasure-hunt themed program where kids will focus on prayer, God the Father, Angels and Saints, and the Mass! They will be inspired to focus on the treasures that await them if they pratice the virtues, including PERSEVERENCE, WISDOM, EXCELLENCE, and GRATITUDE. They will focus on several saints, too, including St. Therese, St. Damien, St. Gianna, and St. John Vianney.

All children who will be in Pre-K through 4th grade in the upcoming 2017-18 school year are invited!

Volunteers make VBS happen! We are glad to have adult volunteers (18+) as well as student volunteers (5th- 12th grade in the upcoming 2018-19 school year). You can volunteer to help all 4 days of VBS or for whatever part of the week you are able to help. There are a number of different volunteer positions available, including Faith Station, Craft Station, Game Station, Snack Station, Music Station, Childcare Area, and Group Leader/Assistant.

Volunteers who work all 4 days of VBS pay a reduced fee for their children who are participating in VBS: $5 per child. Additionally, child care will be available for younger children (age 1 & 2 years old) of volunteers.

If you are interested in volunteering, please complete the on-line form.

As VBS approaches, we will communicate additional Diocese policies for child volunteers to review.

Adult volunteers will need to have Protecting God’s Children (PGC) and a background check (BCI) on file with the diocese before the start of VBS. Please see our Safe Environment page for more information about these requirements. As VBS approaches, we will reach out to you for PGC and BCI dates, and to communicate additional Diocese policies to review.

Thank you for volunteering to help make this year’s VBS a success!
