St. Mary's VBS - Volunteer Information

When: 

July 30th to August 3rd

Volunteer times: 8:30 am-12:30 pm daily.

What is VBS?

Vacation Bible School (or VBS) is a faith based, week long, day camp program offered here at St. Mary's parish. During VBS, children learn more about the Catholic faith through crafts, games, music, and snacks that are all infused with faith teaching. This year's theme is based upon helping children recognise that they are part of the Kingdom of God and that Mary helps to lead us closer to her son. Jesus our King. 



Volunteer Roles

Adult volunteers are vital to ensuring the VBS program runs smoothly and safely for all children & youth involved. 

Adults participate as station leaders to guide children through activities. Adults are also key to behaviour management and program preparation.
