Vacation Bible School
Registration for Vacation Bible School has now begun!

Dates and Times: Monday, June 26th-Thursday, June 30th - 9:00 AM-3:00 PM and

What is Vacation Bible School (VBS)?
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. There will be Bible study activities, arts and crafts, and outdoor games, as well as music and various other fun yet spiritual activities! Lunch is included.
Volunteers: 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.
There will be a Volunteer Information and Training Session for all volunteers on Saturday, June 10 from 10:00-12:00 PM, in the Divine Mercy Parish Community Center. If you are unable to make the meeting, but are interested, please contact us and let us know a good time to meet.
What Else is New? Anyone who has children entering Pre-K4 (or are 4 years old) to be in Vacation Bible School this year. So if any of you have any children, or relatives, who are entering Pre-K4, they may attend this summer!
However, in order for children entering Pre-K4 to attend, there must be at least ONE adult relative of that child who has at least graduated high school or older (i.e. parent, sibling, aunt/uncle, etc.) who will volunteer.
Other Ways to Help: In addition to those who can volunteer during the week, we are also in need of volunteers who can give of their time to help out with Registration, Sign-in/Sign-Out during VBS, set-up in the weeks leading up to VBS, provide materials, or other logistics. Anyone who is unable to help during the week for VBS, as well as parents of children attending, as well as those who have already signed up to volunteer during the week, are invited to help as well in these other capacities. Experience has told us that the more volunteers we have helping out, the better the experience is for children and their families.
If Interested: attending VBS as a camper or volunteering, you may either sign up online, or if you would prefer, download and print out the appropriate form. All forms are on the right side.
You may also pick up a form in the back of church after Mass or stop by the Parish office during the week. Please bring forms back to Church, or scan and e-mail the forms.
If you have already signed up for VBS or to volunteer, then you are set. We are happy you will be joining us this summer!
