All children are invited to bring a flower to Mary at the beginning of the 10:30 am Mass on May 14, Mother's Day. Just line up in the entrance area of church at 10:20 am. Jesus gave us Mary as our mother and queen as well. Come honor her as Jesus honored her as we celebrate our May Crowning!
Early Registration for Vacation Bible School has now begun! This year, the Camp will be available for children in grades K-6th, and it is taking place the week of June 26-June 30th. VBS will run Monday-Thursday (June 26-29) from 9 AM-3 PM, and on Friday, June 30 from 9 AM-12 PM, with a performance at 11:30 AM. VBS will take place at the St. Elizabeth Ann Seton School Site. If you register before the end of May, you will receive a discount!
VBS is a summer camp program that includes daily scripture review and activities about how God plays a role in our lives. This year we are excited because the children will learn a lot about Mary, and the Saints whom played an integral role as witnesses to the Marian Apparitions.
In order for VBS to run smoothly, we need you to serve as volunteers! Volunteers are needed from any parent or teenager (9th-12th grade) as well as college students and adults out of college. There is also availability for 7th-8th graders to serve as junior volunteers.
Anyone who is interested in either attending VBS as a camper or volunteering, you may either print out the appropriate form from Catechesis Page, or sign up in back of church after Mass and bring forms back to Church, School Office (before May 24th), or when Elementary Catechesis, EDGE, or Lifeteen meet. There will be forms in the back of Church in the Narthex, as well as on the website.
You may contact: Jacques Delouche at firstname.lastname@example.org or Ryan Foulon at email@example.com for questions. Thank you very much and hope to see many of you on this thrilling experience. God Bless You.
