Vacation Bible School 2018!

July 30th to August 3rd 2018

"Cool Kingdom Party - Mary Leads Me Closer to Jesus"

What is Vacation Bible School?

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.
