Children entering K4-5th grade in the fall of 2017 are invited to participate in Vacation Bible School (VBS) this summer at St. Matthias Catholic Parish. VBS is taking place the week of Monday, June 19th through Friday, June 23rd from 8:30 am - 12 noon each day in the parish school. The theme for VBS this summer is “Mighty Fortress: In Jesus, the Victory is Won.” Throughout the week, campers will learn about the Word of God through various lessons, including storytelling, music, crafts, and games. Students entering 6th-12th grade are welcome to sign up as volunteers for VBS.
VBS is free for parishioners of St. Matthias. For non-parishioners, there is a $20 fee per child. There is no fee for students registering as volunteers. We ask that you fill out a registration and return it to the parish office by Friday, June 2nd. Child care will be offered before and after VBS during the week through St. Matthias Extended Care (MEC). MEC will be offered beginning at 7 am before VBS and running until 5:30 pm after VBS each day. There is a separate cost for MEC. If you are interested in MEC for the week, please indicate so by checking “yes” for the MEC question on the registration. More information will be sent to you.
VBS is run with volunteer help, and donations (financial or supplies) are greatly appreciated in helping to offset the cost of holding VBS. If you have any questions on registering, volunteering, or donating, please contact Tom Gallagher using the information found below. We hope to see everyone at VBS 2017 “Mighty Fortress: In Jesus, the Victory is Won.”
