St. Patrick’s Parish 11th Annual

Vacation Bible School – Aug 14-18, 2017



A world where curious kids discover that they are lovingly crafted by God and are JOYFULLY HIS!!

As true Christians in these times, the call is growing ever stronger and louder to ‘respond’ to and to ‘follow’ Christ! But WHO is Christ really? Is He really God? Really a Man? Is He a story, a legend, that changes as it gets retold and handed down from generation to generation? In this year’s VBS, the children (Gr K-6)will have the chance to search and discover who and what our Lord IS! He IS REAL! Our Lord holds nothing back as He makes Himself known to us all!                                                                                                  

Day 1- God Made You!– “I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are Your        works and my soul knows it very well.” Psalm 139:14

Day 2 – God is for you! “ If God is for us, who can be against us?”  Romans 8:31

Day 3 – God is always with you! – “Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God your God will be with where ever you go” Joshua 1:9

Day 4 God will always LOVE you! – “Your unfailing love will last forever.” Psalm 89:2

Day 5 –God made you for a reason! – “..for I know the plans I have for you, ’says the LORD.”   Jeremiah 29:11

In getting to KNOW Him, we will also be getting to  KNOW our Mother by learning all about the JOYFUL MYSTERIES. Eager campers will have an encounter with our Lord in the Most Holy Eucharist!  They will have an awesome time playing inter-active games, singing and dancing to great songs, and  making crafts designed to keep them focused on Our Lord and Our Mother Mary long after the camp days are over! All in all,  traditional VBS fun they experience year after year!!

The cost is $45/child (entering KDG- entering Gr. 6).

To help keep costs down and because of allergy risks to some of our young campers, a snack will NOT be provided this year at VBS. We will ask that you pack your child their own hearty snack and water bottle and send it with them daily! (pack for each child separately if you have more than one child attending)

Completed registration forms with payment are due by  Friday, July 3, 2017 to ensure the child receives a t-shirt and other take-home items distributed throughout the course of the camp week.  Registration packages are available in St. Patrick’s Church foyer or Parish office.

If you, or any other family member, might be interested in helping lead a team or station, please contact the coordinators for meeting information!
