Vacation Bible School 2017: Tracking Mary

Jun 12 - Jun 16 5:30p - 8:30p Religious Education

This year's program features the Queen of Heaven Express—a special holy train traveling to the faraway places around the globe visited by Our Blessed Mother: Lourdes, Fatima, Guadalupe, England and Ireland.

Children discover how Mary brings us closer to Jesus through the power of the Rosary. Mysteries and Messages are revealed at each stop. The program focuses on Catholic identity and teaches the Bible from the Catholic perspective. It introduces saints as faith heroes and heroines while encouraging family prayer through a daily Rosary. Children will enjoy skits, activities and games. Sensational, easy-to-make crafts reflect each day's theme. Songs from the Soul Tracks Music CD are lively and the lyrics enrich the overall program.

We are looking for those people who would love to help bring this experience to the children as volunteers. Please contact the Religious Education Office for more information.
