Vacation Bible School

Vacation Bible School takes place annually in June. Parish children ages 4-10 spend the mornings, from 9-11:30am, hearing the message of the gospels through song, story, games and activities. The week culminates with a prayer service and hot dog cookout on Friday.

"Shipwrecked: Rescued by Jesus" is a totally Catholic program where kids ages 4 through 10 learn that Jesus rescues! This experience will help kids begin or deepen their faith by discovering that Jesus cares about them personally and rescues in life's toughest circumstances. It will be a week full of fun, incredible music, and a relaxing island-getaway that all come together to point kids to Jesus!
At VBS, we help the kids discover how much God’s love for them is a part of their everyday life.  Get ready to hear the songs all week!  Our teens will help us guide the children from station to station all morning.  We will have many volunteer parents helping us throughout the week during the sessions and behind the scenes before we even begin.  Please sign up to volunteer - the more help we have the better our program works!

Deadline: June 5th


Open to adults & 8th Grade/High School students - you do NOT need to be an SJS student/graduate to volunteer.
