Cave Quest: Following Jesus, the Light of the World

For the last two weeks, we presented our 10th Annual Vacation Bible School — Cave Quest: Following Jesus, the Light of the World. And while VBS is advertised as “Totally Catholic”, be aware that musically, here it's also TOTALLY LIVE! Our “spelunkers” had a ball and didn't miss a beat as they sang and danced accompanied by a live band of keyboards, guitar, flute and percussion!

Additionally, we featured Adam Bueno on flute on "I’m All In", a song affirming that God gives us direction. Hannah Dono had a cello solo in "Majestic", accompanied by the “blue” spelunkers on hand chimes as we expressed what we could give back to God—our praise! "Majestic" is a song by Lincoln Brewster, an American contemporary Christian musician and worship pastor.

Did you know a spelunker is a cave explorer? It’s a Latin word: from spelunk, meaning "cave." If you hope to be a spelunker someday, you probably have a love of dark, damp spaces and headlamps!

We had fun playing our own version of Dancing with the Spelunkers! We challenged each other to see who performed these songs with the most appropriate enthusiasm, and our six semi-finalists were Holden and Xavier Beelders; Marcus Bueno; Thomas Dono; Waylon Gomori and Lucas Kablan. But the enthusiasm we share at VBS needs to be continued into our Sunday liturgies, so YOUR challenge is to set an example for our young friends each Sunday at Mass with the passion of your praise.
