This summer, Immaculate Heart of Mary presents our 11
th Annual Vacation Bible School — Maker Fun Factory! Its slogan is “Created by God; Built for a Purpose”. For anyone participating, we’ll explore a world where curious people of all ages become hands-on inventors who discover we’re lovingly created by God.

In keeping with the theme, we'll create our own fun arrangement of the traditional American spiritual “He’s Got the Whole World In His Hands”. (Did you know that the popular 1957 British recording of this song by Laurie London is the only gospel song to hit #1 on a U.S. pop singles chart?) We’ll also build our own version of “Oh Happy Day”, an 18
th century hymn popularized by a 1960’s gospel recording, heard in movies such as Sister Act II or Big Momma’s House. And one of the new songs we’ll learn is “Wonderfully Made Parade”.

Come join the Wonderfully Made Parade 
Celebrate the awesome things that God has made 
God created me special, He made you special too 
We sing and pray and laugh and play 
Look at all the things that we can do 

And so our Maker Fun Factory is going to build a parade! And we need all the help we can get! We need to build floats, costumes, props, etc. And we’re hoping some of you can march with us in our parade on July 21st. So find your old baton, get out your uniform or costume, and come join the wonderfully made parade!

Students should register now for Maker Fun Factory, which happens July 10th – July 21st. For more information, pick up a registration form in the rectory, or email S. Mary Ann at ihmsma@ihmbrooklyn.org.
