Vacation Bible School
“To be understood as to understand,
To be loved as to love, For it is in giving that we receive. . .”
~ from The Prayer of Saint Francis
Vacation Bible School at Holy Cross Parish!
What is Vacation Bible School?
Each summer, our community spends a week with children, teens, and adults in song, crafts, games, acting, and prayer as we learn about our Catholic faith. Children are in small groups led by our amazing teens and they move through stations during our mornings, experiencing Christ in music, crafts, games, and story. We learn passages from the Bible, we meet new saints each day, and we grow closer to one another as we build our community.
No Vacation Bible School 2020, but we've got you covered!
Join us for Summer Faith Fun!
We won't be having VBS this summer, due to COVID-19. We want to keep you and your families healthy and happy, so we aren't hosting the usual VBS.
