Untitled Document St. Patrick's Catholic Church  



VBS Our Vacation Bible School has had a great time exploring Jesus' Miraculous Mission to Save the World. We had 45 kids in attendance this year. They learned Bible verses, heard Bible stories, played out-of-this-world games, had fun with crafts and sang some great songs. They wrapped up the week showcasing what they learned through song at a program with a dinner following. The children learned about how God made the universe and promised us a savior. They also learned about how Jesus was born, died and rose to save us from sin. Lastly, they learned how Jesus the Savior reigns and is always here for us. The children at VBS were also on MISSIONS all week to help our neighbors and community by doing Act of Kindness every day and by bringing items to donate to our local food bank. We would like to say a great big THANK YOU to all of our leaders, helpers and team leaders. You make our VBS great every year. We also need to say THANK YOU to the parents for making VBS a priority for your children.
